Ingredients

Ice Cubes:

1 large lime sliced into 4 1/4-inch thick slices

1 cup water

1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from 4 large limes)

Ginger Simple Syrup:

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

1 4-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and diced into 1/4-inch pieces

Ice

1 cup lemon-flavored vodka

1/2 cup sparkling water, chilled

Special equipment: ice cube tray

Directions

  1. For the ice cubes: Cut each lime slice in quarters and place into 16 ice cube molds. Combine the water and lime juice and pour over the lime slices. Freeze for at least 4 hours until frozen.
  2. For the syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and ginger over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool, about 20 minutes. Cover the pan and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  3. Chill 4 martini glasses in the freezer. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka, ginger syrup, and sparkling water. Shake for 10 seconds and strain the mixture into the prepared glasses. Place 1 to 2 lime-flavored ice cubes in each glass and serve.
