Ginger-Lime Syrup

Ginger has sialagogue properties, meaning that it stimulates the production of saliva (and helps your drinks go down easier!). Get back to your roots with this ginger syrup with a hint of lime.

Ginger-Lime Syrup
GET IT
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 lime, washed and sliced into 1/4″ thick rounds
  • 4 inch piece of ginger
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • Storage vessel of choice (make sure it has a tight-fitting lid)
  • Fine mesh strainer
MAKE IT

Peel the ginger – we like to use the back of a spoon to remove the papery skin. Slice the ginger into quarter-inch coins. You should have about 3/4 cup total.

In a small saucepan, combine water, lime and ginger. Bring to a soft boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Strain out the ginger and lime and return the liquid to the saucepan (you should have about 2 1/2 cups). Add sugar and stir until it fully dissolves. Let cool to room temperature. Pour into airtight container. Store in the refrigerator.
