Preparation

Add the sugar and water to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat to create a simple syrup, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar completely. Remove from heat and cool slightly before proceeding.

Add cooled simple syrup and remaining liquid ingredients to a large bowl or drink dispenser. Add grated ginger and stir to fully combine.
