How to ask out a co-worker who I rarely interact with?

Cute girl at the office. How to ask her out? We've spoken at lunch once, but she joined only once over multiple months, and we very rarely get a chance to interact. Plus there's no opportunity for a hint of privacy to speak with her.

I don't work in her department but she's sorta close by. I might see her once per day. She had lunch some some of my group once, but that happened only once over two months.
Our department is cramped. Her desk is right by another. So, asking her out in person with any hint of privacy would be basically impossible to do.
She does know who I am and has interacted with me, but very briefly. So if I send an email or meeting request (sounds amusing to me, and I can be clever with words, but could sound lame on the other hand) And from prior interactions, she at least has a mental concept of who the hell I am.
She's not in my department so awkwardness of failure is not really a concern, nor is how relations with her could effect my employer relationship.
