Ginger-Lime Syrup

Yield Makes 1 1/3 cups
Use Ginger-Lime Syrup to sweeten a favorite cooler like our Cucumber-Ginger Limeade.


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup peeled and coarsely chopped ginger
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime zest (about 3 limes)
  • 2 cups water

How to Make It

  1. Process sugar, ginger, and lime zest in a food processor 15 seconds. Transfer to a small saucepan, and stir in water. Cook over medium heat 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and let stand 10 minutes. Pour through a fine wire-mesh strainer, discarding solids.
