DIY: Whiskey Ginger with Homemade Ginger Syrup

Homemade ginger syrup + candied ginger 
Ginger Syrup, makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Needed: 1 cup water, 2 cups sugar, 2 cups grated and thinly sliced ginger root.
Grate and slice up your ginger, set aside. In a pot combine the water and sugar. Over medium heat stir until the sugar is dissolved. Now add in the ginger and simmer on low/medium heat for 30 minutes. Allow this to cool slightly and strain the syrup, reserving the ginger slices. Store this in a seal container in your refrigerator for up to a month.

Easy Candied Ginger, makes about 1 cup

Needed: the reserved ginger slices from making ginger syrup and 1/3 cup sugar.
Rinse off the ginger slices and pat dry. Dip each in the sugar and place on a paper towel. Allow these to dry out for a couple of hours. Use to garnish drinks or other foods. You can just eat these too, but they are quite strong. You have been warned.

To make your whiskey gingers combine 3-4 tablespoons ginger syrup, 2 cups club soda, and a shot of whiskey. Add ice and garnish with a candied ginger slice. You can adjust these to be as strong as you like. Or you can leave the whiskey out and still have a lovely ginger drink.
