Recipe: Ginger Vodka Lemonade

Ginger and Vodka Lemonade makes a great treat this afternoon 
Now I know this doesn't count as a food... although on Friday nights a nice cocktail could count as an integral part of the food pyramid. This drink is perfect for this Sunday afternoon, or, well, just about any weekend. Perfectly refreshing with just a hint of bite...
Vodka Ginger Lemonade
1 C Water 1 C Sugar 2 t Ground Ginger 1 (750 mL) Bottle of Sparkling Water 1/2 C Lemon Juice 1 1/4C Vodka Bring 1 cup of water, sugar and ginger to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir constantly for 1 minute, or until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
Pour Sparkling water, lemon juice, vodka and 1 cup of the ginger simple syrup over ice in a large pitcher; stir gently. Makes 6 servings, but do yourself a favor and just double this recipe... you'll be wanting more. I run a little lemon around the lip of the glass and dip them in sugar for a nice presentation. If you want, you could color your sugar to make it a little more festive.
