Try Ming Tsai's refreshing non-alcoholic cocktail recipe.
Fill four glasses with club soda. Pour two tablespoons ginger syrup down side of each glass to create a layer of syrup on bottom. Squeeze lime wedge into each drink, garnish with a fresh lime wedge and candied ginger.
For the ginger syrup::
In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine sugar, ginger and water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until syrupy and reduced by half, about 40 to 45 minutes. Strain ginger pieces out and reserve syrup.
(Trick: toss dried ginger in sugar, bake at 200 degrees until dried thru, about 4 hours and voila-ginger candy)
