Take a ginger root (about4 inches long), slice it thin or grate it into a pot. Add enough water to make 1.75L and boil for about 30 minutes (more or less, depending on how thickly you sliced the ginger and how long it takes to extract the flavor). Add lemon juice to taste- I think we use about an eighth of a cup. Add about 1.5 cups sugar (to taste) and some brown sugar (maybe a quarter cup) to add some color.
Cool the mixture and strain it. I use 1.75L liquor bottles to store this concentrated mixture.
You can cut it 1/3 mix with 2/3rds hot water and serve as a delicious ginger tea. You can also add it to seltzer to make soda. It's also supposed to aid in digestion, so sometimes I just have a straight shot of the stuff. It's pretty good on its own.
