Ginger infused simple syrup made with equal parts sugar and water with a few slices of fresh ginger root for flavor.



  • 5 slices ginger root (1/4-inch each)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup boiling water


  1. Wash and dry a 1 pint jar with a tight fitting cap. Add ginger to the jar. Add sugar. Pour water over the sugar. Cover jar tightly. Hold jar with a kitchen towel and shake vigorously until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cool at room temperature. Use immediately or refrigerate up to two weeks. Remove ginger coins before using.


The ginger flavor will get stronger as it sits in the fridge with the ginger coins. If you prefer a more mild taste, simply taste the syrup after a day or two. Remove the ginger once it tastes strong enough for you.
