Makes 4 cocktails

3 oz. roasted pear ginger simple syrup
3 oz. ginger ale or tonic water or vodka
Twist of lemon

Shake simple syrup, ice, and vodka in a martini shaker and strain into a martini glass.  (If using a carbonated beverage as a virgin alternative like ginger ale or tonic water, do not shake it.  Mix it with very cold ginger ale or tonic water.)
