Ginger Simple Syrup

Ginger syrup, it's so simple to make.  (ha! Sorry.)  It's great way to punch up your lemonade, ice tea or cocktails this summer.  You'll find it in a margarita in an upcoming post.  Store it in the fridge.

Ginger Simple Syrup

8 oz water

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup chopped, peeled fresh ginger

In a small sauce pot, combine water, sugar and ginger.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and let steep for 30 minutes.  Strain.
