Lemon Ginger Simple Syrup

May 11, 2013

I love having this on hand – it’s a great way to flavor fizzy water or a drink. It comes together pretty quickly and will last in the fridge for about two weeks (if it lasts that long!).

You will need:

  • 2 c sugar
  • 2 c water
  • 3 inches of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 1 1/4 c fresh lemon juice (about 7-9 lemons)

Then you will…

  1. Bring the sugar, water and fresh ginger to a boil over medium low heat.
  2. Reduce heat to simmer and allow to reduce by half, or until you have a syrupy consistency.
  3. Remove the fresh ginger slices.
  4. Stir in the lemon juice and mix well.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  6. Store in a sealed container in the fridge.
