Ginger simple syrup recipe

I originally made this ginger simple syrup to spice up my hard cider sangria recipe. I made more than I needed for that recipe and have since used the rest of it to sweeten drinks, it works for any cocktail where you want a hint of spice flavor as well as for tea and coffee.

This spiced simple syrup can also be made using panela or piloncillo and will have a richer more intense flavor, similar to miel de panela. The panela or piloncillo spiced simple syrup will work great as a topping for pancakes, waffles and even cakes.
