Gingered Gin Martini
Mother's Ruin...at it's finest. The syrup that we neglected to thin from the crystallized ginger making was a little thick, but we decided to keep it in it's honey-like consistency so that it might serve multiple uses. Because of this, you'll want to mix the syrup with the gin before shaking it over ice.
Gingered Gin Martini:
Makes 1 martini
2 oz gin (Monster used Tanqueray rangpur lime gin)
~1/2 tsp straight ginger syrup (I've since added 1/2 cup of water to the whole batch of syrup...we'll see if that's enough to keep it liquid)
gingered sugar for rimming glass
Mix syrup into gin, then shake over ice. Rim martini glass with gingered sugar, strain drink and off you go!
