Ginger Syrup

This syrup is great to use in cocktails or just use with soda water as a refreshing pick me up in the afternoon.  It also helps when you’re not feeling your best or a bit nauseous.


  • 100g fresh ginger
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 lemon


Grate ginger into a saucepan and add all other ingredients.  Bring to the boil and then reduce heat.  Simmer for 30-40 minutes until slightly syrupy.

Let cool and then strain through a fine sieve.  Store syrup in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

You can use the reserved strained ginger in ice cream – delicious!
