Combine sucralose and water. Add ginger. Simmer for about 30 minutes until reduced to about 1 cup and a light syrup consistancy. Strain through sieve (to remove ginger pulp) then through coffee filter (to make a clear syrup). Allow to cool. This can be made ahead in quantity and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. See this recipe for more details:
Mix together 1/2 ounce of lime juice and 1 ounce of ginger syrup then pour over crushed ice in a tall (12 ounce) glass. Fill glass with about 6-8 ounces of soda water and stir briefly. Garnish with a slice of lime, 1/2 a cherry, and piece of candied ginger on a stick.
An umbrella and thin straw may be added to complete the presentation.
VARIATIONS: Adding a small amount of dark rum or vodka would make this a refreshing adult beverage.

We enjoyed the normal (sugar syrup) version of this drink so much I asked for the recipe. Then I tinkered a bit and came up with this slimmed down version.
