This syrup is a special treat for your family and friends... They will know..know..know that you love them!!! Every time they taste this they will think about you... I have had people call me and let me know that this reminded them to see how I am doing! Who needs those expensive coffee places? Not you and your loved ones! *** If you don't want to use the fresh grated ginger...just add more ground ginger powder.
