Lime and Ginger Syrup

  • Servings: MAKES ABOUT 1 1/2 QUARTS

Indians drink about as many sherbets (pronounced shar-bats), or fruit-syrup drinks, as Iranis. For each drink, pour about a half inch of the syrup into a tall glass, add ice cubes, fill the glass with water or seltzer and garnish with a sprig of mint or a lime slice.
