Ginger Nectar

I love anything to do with ginger. Any sort of herbal tea with ginger in it, ginger crunch, ginger loaf, ginger in stir-fries, ginger in curries, ginger any which way!! This is a recipe for a ginger nectar that you could use as the basis for a cool fizzy drink, or as a lovely winter warmer. I got out the big machinery (my juicer) to extract the ginger juice, if you don’t have one you could grate the fresh root then squeeze it tightly in a piece of cloth to extract the juice instead. The quantities given here make enough nectar for at least 10 drinks and the mixture will store in the fridge for a week.

Ingredients:
1 large piece of fresh ginger (approx 100g) – juiced
1/2 cup honey
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

Method:
Stir together the honey and boiling water until the honey has melted.
Add lemon and ginger juice and stir.
Put 3-4 tbsp into a glass .. top with ice cubes and fizzy water for a refreshing drink, or with boiling water for a hot drink.

Enjoy!

    This sounds like such a great way to start the morning instead of the usual coffee or tea… I’ll definitely be giving this a try soon. I’m not usually a big fan of ginger, but this sounds really tasty!
