Ginger Simple Syrup - Easiest Recipe

I’m a huge fan of ginger, it’s spicy, it’s flavorful, it’s incredibly delicious. I also love the fact that’s incredibly versatile and that it goes so well with lemonades and cocktails and pretty much everything that needs an extra oomph of flavor.

Until recently I used to add grated ginger to all my drinks, however, I was not a big fan of finding little ginger pieces – after all, a little bit of ginger is awesome, a whole lot tastes like cough meds – so I decided to peruse the internet in the search for a way to still add ginger, since the ginger bits

And that’s when the idea of ginger simple syrup popped around. I tried, tried another one, tweaked a bit the recipe and the final tested and tried result is here and it’s amazing! As in so so good you’ll want to add it to everything.

I use ginger simple syrup to spice up:

  • Lemonades
  • Orange juice
  • Pretty much every cocktail and sangria under the sun
  • Homemade ice creams
  • Hot tea
  • And finally, to bottle it up and give it as a housewarming or Christmas gift

Oh and also the recipe for making ginger simple syrup from scratch is incredibly easy and uses a grand total of 3 ingredients: ginger, sugar, and water.

What do you need to keep in mind when making ginger simple syrup at home?

  1. Use equal parts of water and sugar
  2. Bring water and sugar to a boil before adding the ginger
  3. Peel and chop the ginger
  4. Let the ginger steep in the simple syrup for at least 30 minutes, but I have found out that the result is much better if you let it steep for 2 hours.
  5. Discard the ginger pieces before bottling it up

And that’s it. It’s seriously that’s easy. I haven’t tried yet making this same ginger simple syrup and adding other mix-ins like mint but I’m pretty sure the result must be mind-blowing good as well.
