A basic recipe for a rich simple syrup infused with ginger.


  • 16 ounces (by weight) sugar
  • 8 ounces of water
  • 1” knob ginger (quarter diameter)


  1. Slice the ginger into slices and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan add the sugar and water and stir to combine over medium-low heat. When the sugar crystals have dissolved turn off the heat and add the ginger slices and allow them to steep for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours. When the flavor is what you prefer, remove and discard the ginger slices and transfer the ginger rich syrup into a label container and store in the refrigerator for 6 months or freezer for a year.
