Ingredients

  • 4 inches fresh ginger roughly chopped
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoon agave
  • 1 handful fresh mint
  • lime-flavored sparkling water like La Croix
  • fresh lime juice

Instructions

To make Ginger Simple Syrup

  • Roughly chop fresh ginger. There's no need to peel it. Bring to a boil with water and agave in a small saucepan. Once boiling for a minute or two, simmer for 15 minutes. 
  • Strain ginger out and let cool completely. Store in the refrigerator until ready to make drink.

Make Drink

  • Muddle a few sprigs of mint in the bottom of a glass just enough to bring out some scent and flavor. Fill glass with ice.
  • Pour chilled ginger simple syrup in glass about ¼-1/3 of the way, depending on how gingery you want it to taste.
  • Fill to top with lime-flavored sparkling water and a couple squeezes of lime juice. 
  • Stir and top with a sprig of mint.
