Aung San Freedom Drink

This cocktail is named after the famous Burmese general who fought for his nation's independence from British occupation. Burma gained independence on January 4, 1948, but Aung San was assassinated almost 6 months beforehand, never getting to see the free nation that he had fought for.

1 juicy lime
1 shot of gin
1-2 T ginger syrup (see below)
Some sparkling water

Squeeze the lime juice into a rocks glass, and stir in the gin.

Add about 1- 2 tablespoons of ginger syrup, and then top off with some sparkling water.

Give it a stir and enjoy!

Makes 1 drink.

Ginger Syrup

This is a flavorful syrup that can be used to sweeten teas, as well as in salad dressings, or drizzled over fruit for dessert.

½ cup sugar
1 cup water
1 1-inch knob of ginger, sliced into thin rounds

In a small saucepan, boil the sugar, water, and ginger until reduced by half.

Strain and cool.
