Christmas drinking!

"A refreshing long drink for the drivers!"

Ginger Syrup 

Not just a refreshing drink for those who do not wish to drink, but a tummy settler after too much good food and a welcome sweetener for a 'lemsip'.

225g sugar
300ml water
2 lemons un-waxed or organic
1cm slice of ginger

Put the sugar and water to a saucepan.
Finely grate the zest from the lemons into the saucepan.
Grate the ginger and add to the saucepan.
Put the saucepan on a medium heat and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5-7 minutes.
Cover the pan with a lid or cling film and leave overnight.
Next day cut the lemons in half and squeeze the juice into the saucepan.
Strain the contents of the pan through a sieve and into a sterilised bottle. Dilute to taste with still or sparkling water.
