Ginger-Infused Simple Syrup Recipe

  • 1/2 cup – Shredded Ginger
  • 1 cup – Water
  • 1 cup – Sugar (We used Organic Coconut Sugar)

Peel the skin off the ginger, then finely shred it.  You can also cut the ginger up in fine bits, but I prefer to shred it to emphasize the ginger flavor in the syrup.

In a saucepan, pour in the water & sugar and stir until it’s dissolved.  Just before it boils, put in your ginger and stir continuously until it just begins to boil.  Turn down heat to a low simmer for 3-5 mins.  Let the ginger simple syrup cool in the pan for 30 to 60 mins, or until cooled.  This is where you can have a lighter ginger infused flavor or a robust flavor.  It’s not all that different than brewing tea.

After everything has cooled strain into a storage container.  I use an olive oil style glass container with a pour spout.  It makes it easy to store and really easy to pour for drinks.  Use it for margaritas, mojitos, lemonade, or anywhere you need a little ginger infused sweetness.
