    Zeldaz's Note:

    Adapted by Tasting Table from a recipe by Tad Weyland, chef at Heirloom LA, Los Angeles. The syrup tastes like a lemon drop with candied ginger thrown into the mix.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached cane sugar, preferably organic
    • 3/4 cup water
    • 1/2 lb fresh gingerroot, washed and sliced
    • 1 large lemon, preferably organic, washed and sliced into rounds. Reserve half of the rounds for garnish
    • 3/4 cup seltzer water or 3/4 cup sparkling water, per serving


    1. 1
      Make double-strength simple syrup:.
    2. 2
      Place sugar and water in medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, using a wooden spoon to stir occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Make simple syrup into flavored syrup:.
    4. 4
      Place the ginger, lemon, and the simple syrup in a blender jar, cover the jar, and blend on lowest speed until the solid ingredients are roughly chopped, about 1 minute.
    5. 5
      Turn off the blender and let the mixture steep for 10 minutes. Repeat, this time blending the syrup on medium speed for 1 minute, then shut it off and let steep 10 minutes more.
    6. 6
      Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve lined with 2 layers of water-moistened cheesecloth over a medium bowl. Store syrup tightly covered in the refrigerator up to a week.
