1. Prepare the ginger syrup: Put water and
sugar into a small saucepan and place
over medium heat. Bring just to a boil
to dissolve the sugar. Add the chopped
ginger and allow syrup to simmer for
about 30 minutes. Strain and reserve
the syrup, discarding the ginger. Chill the
syrup in the refrigerator until needed.
2. Prepare the tea: Put tea in a heatproof
glass or measuring cup. Put at least 10
ounces of water into the kettle and select
the Delicate setting. Pour 8 ounces of hot
water into the cup. Allow to steep for
about 5 minutes. Strain. Refrigerate tea
until chilled.
3. Prepare the cocktail: Fill a cocktail shaker
with ice. Put cocktail ingredients into the
shaker. Shake well and pour evenly
between 2 martini glasses.
