Recipe Notes

This ginger syrup is fairly simple to put together. Use a ratio of 1 cup boiled water to 1 cup Granulated sugar. Have this simmer in a small saucepan, with 4 tablespoons of freshly Grated Ginger, for 5 minutes before straining. Let this come to room temperature before use. Can last in the fridge for up to 1 week. 

The Dwight way would be to make the Beer, Gin and Beet juice, but for this recipe, it's easy and I simply picked up Cedar Juices Beet Juice. Any fresh pressed juice can work, or you can make it yourself!
