Vodka Ginger Lemonade

A Refreshing Cocktail

This cocktail will wake up your senses.  The first thing you’ll notice is the lemon’s mellow tartness, then sweetness before the low gingery heat settles in. All that excitement in one sip.

Vodka Ginger Lemonade

Serves 6

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
1 (750-milliliter) bottle sparkling water
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/4 cups vodka
Garnish: candied ginger

Bring 1 cup water, sugar, and ginger to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir constantly about 1 minute or until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.

Pour sparkling water, lemon juice, vodka, and 1 cup of the ginger simple syrup over ice in a large pitcher; stir gently. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.
