Ginger Simple Syrup

Make Your Own Ginger Simple Syrup

I'm a bit of a cocktail fanatic, which means that I place almost as much weight on the strength of a restaurant's bar list as its menu when making dining-out decisions. That said, the fancy creations I crave often come with an equally precious price point, so I'm always looking for a way to replicate my favorite boozy treats at home. For this reason, I prefer keeping the basic accoutrements on hand for concocting a simple cocktail when a craving hits.

I turn to simple syrups to flavor and sweeten cocktails, and when I'm looking for a particularly punchy ginger kick, I often pull out a bottle of my homemade ginger simple syrup. And while ginger simple syrup's most obvious application is in the cocktails I crave, I've managed to find a whole host of secondary uses.

Keep reading to see what they are — and get the ginger simple syrup recipe.

  • Used as a sweetener and flavor enhancer in popsicles and granitas.
  • Stirred into my morning oatmeal.
