Ginger Lime Fizz

8 servings

The ginger syrup made in step one may be stored in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to a week.


  • 1 ½ pounds fresh ginger, thinly sliced

  • 4 cups water

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 liter seltzer or sparkling water


  1. Combine ginger and sugar with 4 cups water, or enough to cover, in a medium saucepan. Place over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; stir until sugar dissolves completely. Continue to simmer about 20 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool to room temperature, at least 2 hours. Strain out the ginger, and discard.

  2. Combine the ginger syrup, lime juice, and seltzer in a pitcher. Pour into ice-filled glasses, and serve immediately.
