*To make the Honey-Ginger syrup
Take 1 ½ oz (40ml) of honey, 2 tbsp sugar, ½ oz (15ml) of water and 1 large piece of fresh ginger. Stir together the honey, sugar, and water in a small bowl. Run the ginger through a juicer or grate finely and squeeze in a piece of cheesecloth to separate the juice. Add 1 ½ oz (40ml) of ginger juice to the bowl and stir until the sugar and honey dissolve. If necessary, heat the mixture for a few seconds in the microwave to help the sugar dissolve. Allow to cool and store in a refrigerator in a sealed container.
