Combine ginger, 2 cups water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Set over high heat and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then strain syrup through a fine-mesh strainer. Syrup will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

To serve, fill glasses with ice. Add 1 tablespoon ginger syrup to each glass and top with sparkling water. Stir, then taste and add more syrup if desired.
