Ingredients:1 cup peeled, sliced ginger root5 sprigs lavender (plus more for garnish)1 cup raw sugar2 cups water1 quart sparkling water2 limes, quartered (plus more for garnish)Directions: In a small saucepan, bring the ginger, lavender, sugar, and water to a boil over medium-high heat. Turn the heat down to medium-low and gently simmer for 15-20 minutes. Either strain the liquid into a 2-cup measure, or use a slotted spoon to remove the ginger slices and lavender sprigs. You should have about 1 1/2 - 1 3/4 cup of ginger syrup. Fill your water glasses (I used mason jars) with ice cubes, pour in 1/4 cup of ginger syrup and 3/4 cup sparkling water, and squeeze one wedge of lime into the glass. Stir until incorporated. Taste, and add more syrup as needed. Garnish with a few slices of ginger, sprigs of lavender, and a lime wedge, if you so choose.Gin and Gingers Cocktail:2 cups ginger syrup2 cups gin1 quart sparkling water2 limes, quartered (plus more for garnish)Combine 4 ice cubes, 1/4 cup ginger syrup, 1/4 cup gin, and 1/2 cup sparkling water in a tall water glass.
