Ginger Syrup


This ginger syrup can be used to flavor just about anything, but we love adding it to plain seltzer for homemade ginger ale.

  • Yield: Makes 2 cups

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July/August 1999


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 six-inch piece fresh ginger, finely diced


  1. Place sugar, ginger, and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook about 1 hour, until ginger flavor is quite strong. Let cool; strain before using. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to a week.

    Intense flavor. Great in cocktails, too strong for a sauce. Syrup is surprisingly dark.
