• 75g fresh ginger, sliced thinly
  • 1 bottle of cognac (I use Hennessey for this liqueur.)
  • 200g honey
  • 4 tablespoons of water

Pour the cognac over the ginger slices and leave to soak for a week. Shake the bottle or glass every day. After a week, pour the cognac through a sieve, mix the ginger slices with the honey and water in a pot and bring to the boil. Boil for a good 3 minutes, and then leave to cool covered over. When it has cooled pour back into the cognac and shake well, seal and leave to rest. At first it will be a bit cloudy but when left for a week or so this will settle. This keeps forever in a good sealed bottle -- if you have the will power to leave it!
