A spot of tipple : Ginger Fizz

Where did spring go to? We're certainly in need of a spot of tipple with a bit of spice to warm us up so what better than a gorgeous bit of ginger fizz to warm our cockles!

Ingredients
 ice
 dash of freshly squeezed orange juice
 5oml gin
 dash of bitter lemon

Ginger syrup
 2 cups of stem ginger
 2 cups sugar
 4 cups water

Start off by preparing your ginger syrup, chop, peel and blend the ginger in a food processor, cook gently on a simmer with the sugar and water for an hour until the liquid has reduced. Then strain and save aside, the mix will last for 2-3 weeks kept in the fridge.

Add all of the ingredients together, using 50ml of the ginger syrup and shake well.

Strain into a glass filled with ice and garnish with an orange wedge.

Best drunk: why, straight away of course!
