Thanks!!, its one of my nostalgic favorites, but the ginger adds that right touch of spiciness & lime & ginger pair so well together!

This sounds great I just love having an array of infused syrups hanging around for summer drinks. Limes are wonderful and with the ginger syrup even better.

Thanks Susan g.. The nice thing about this is that it takes all of 2 minutes to cobble together! (if you have the ginger syrup done ahead of course!)
