Step 1: Ingredients & tools
sugar - white
sauce pan (or two)
empty 2-liter soda bottle
Step 2: Prep ginger & limes
Grate or finely chop the ginger. The smaller the pieces, the more flavor you can get out of it.
Cut the limes in half and juice them. I like a really citrus-y taste, so I used two. I find that firmly rolling the limes on the counter before cutting gets more out when you juice them.
Step 3: Make the syrup
Add the ginger and lime juice to the syrup. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 minutes. Take it off the heat and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Strain the ginger pulp out (I pour it through the strainer into another pot) and let the syrup cool completely. Put it in a bottle (the funnel comes in handy here) and refridgerate.
