GINGER DRINK

Let me introduce you to a drink my mama used to make for me and my siblings when we were little. Ginger drink! Drum roll and hand clapping, please. Forget the “ginger” in this drink. It is so good that you will forget that it was made with a pungent spice – ginger. This is thanks to the abundance of sweetness that covers the multitude of heat in the ginger! All you are left to revel in is a sweet, slightly hot flavourful drink…

… which my kids love! They finished my cuppa while I was doing this photo shoot. And they asked for more. AND they even asked if I could make a special batch for them. My girls are tea drinkers (hello mint and lemon grass tea!) and salad eaters (hello coleslaw!) Ha.

Back in the day, I drank this because it was highly pleasant to the taste. Today, I drink it because, it is tasty and healthy!

The ginger root is extremely beneficial for health. It contains anti-inflammatory properties, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. I could dedicate a whole post talking about ginger. This root-ish thing loves your body and brain! It should be a regular in your home. Your body needs it.

To make the tea, all you need is some fresh ginger and sugar or honey. I went with honey because Mr N bought half a dozen of honey which I am bent on finishing.

Ginger Tea Recipe

And that my friends, is all you need to do to have some ginger tea for your drinking pleasure. Double, triple or quadrupule the recipe as needed. You could enjoy this hot, warm or cold. For variation in flavor, boil it with some fresh lemon grass, mint leaves, or squeeze some lemon juice into it before drinking. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you want your ginger drink cold, let it cool completely then place in the fridge to chill before drinking.

Use more or less ginger depending on how strong you want your tea to taste.

For added flavour, boil together with lemon grass or mint leaves. You could also squeeze in some fresh lemon juice right before drinking.

  2. Just like that? This is so easy.
    I buy canned ginger drinks here and I know how much it cost.
    Thanks so much Precious.
    I think adding milk won’t be a bad idea, or what do you think?

  3. I make mine in a similar fashion without the added sweetener. I add lemon and apple cider vinegar to mine and drink after dinner.

  4. This is so interesting! Am out of here to do it.
    I was about asking if it could be serve warm , cold or but but I read further my question was answered.
    Thanks Precious!
