Gingered Lemon Punch by inpatskitchen

Like cream soda for grownups, this gingery vanilla lemon punch will fill your guests (and perhaps more importantly, you) with cheer. You can even share some with the kids -- just use the leftover syrup for an aromatic ginger ale by mixing with seltzer. The lemony ice cubes are delightful and will solidify your reputation as the best host around. One warning -- the vodka does a great job of slipping into the punch unnoticed, so watch yourselves. - A&M

The syrup calls for both white and brown sugar; the latter gives it a lovely rich depth.

The syrup bubbles away until it's reduced by about half and infused with the ginger.

If you'd like, save the ginger slices to flavor sparkling water, prosecco, etc.
