  • For the simple syrup, in a small saucepan, bring the sugar, ginger, and 3/4 cup water to a low boil over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until syrupy, about 15 minutes. Remove the ginger and let cool completely. (Can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.)

  • For 1 drink, fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, simple syrup, and triple sec. Shake well and strain into a glass filled with ice. Top with club soda and a pinch of flaky salt, if using. Garnish with the lime wheel and cinnamon stick.
