To make the margaritas:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a tall shaker and fill with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 second to allow the ice to melt and the mixture to chill. Pour the contents of a shaker into a salt rimmed glass and enjoy!

For the ginger syrup:

  1. Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook, stirring occasionally, on medium-low heat until simmering. Allow to cook for an additional 25 minutes on low heat. Strain the ginger out of the syrup and chill in a heat proof container until cold. The syrup will make more that one margarita.
