2 oz fresh-squeezed orange juice

4 dashes orange bitters
very thinly sliced orange and lime slices for garnish

Alternatively, you could serve this on the rocks in a highball glass and top with soda water for a great fizzy drink.

1/2 lb of ginger (about two large pieces)
2c. sugar
2c. water

Chop washed ginger in food processor. Add to water and sugar and simmer on low for about an hour. Strain and pour into a bottle, cool.
