Mix ginger-lime syrup and refrigerate. Slice cucumber ribbons and in a highball glass, gently twist and drape cucumber ribbons around inside edge, working way from bottom to top. In a cocktail shaker, combine gin, syrup, club soda and shake for 20 seconds. Pour gently into glass, adding straw and lime wedge to finish.
Heat in saucepan until slow boil. Pour contents into food processor and blend. Strain ginger from syrup. Refrigerate.
