Heat the sugar, ginger and water in a small saucepan, stirring continuously until the sugar is dissolved.

Simmer uncovered for 5-8 minutes until slightly thickens and reduced in amount. Cool.

Divide the raspberries, mint and lime wedges among 2 glasses. Pour 2 T of the sugar syrup in each glass.

Using a wooden spoon or muddler, crush the mixture to release the juice and oils of the fruit and mint.

Top each glass with crushed ice, fill with a mixture of cold pom and fizzy or soda water and serve.
