Why Ginger Shots? 🤔

First off, why even bother with ginger shots? These tiny but mighty drinks are packed with natural anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Perfect for when you're feeling a bit 'off' or just want to give your system a little kickstart. I always make sure I have a batch in my fridge for when I'super busy and don't want to get sick. I used to get tonsillitis alllll the time and now thanks to these bad boys (and a couple of other things) I rarely get it now. If you want my tonsillitis busting tips check out this post.

What you will need for this Ginger Shot Recipe 🛒




Something to store them in (could be a mason jar or little bottles but glass is best)


  • Ginger (duhh) fresh is best for this one

  • 1 lemon

  • Cloudy apple juice You can use fresh apples but it makes the process longer so I prefer to use fresh. Ideally you want to buy not from concentrate.

  • Optional: a dash of cayenne pepper for extra heat

  • Optional: a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup for sweetness

The Steps 🍋

  1. Peel and Chop: Start by washing your ginger and chopping it into small pieces.

  2. Blend it: Add all ingredients to the blender.

  3. Strain: Use a fine-mesh strainer/sieve to remove any pulp, leaving you with a smooth liquid.

  4. Bottle Up: Pour your homemade ginger shots into a small bottle or jar. Keep it in the fridge, and it should last for up to a week!

  5. Store: Keep in the fridge and they should be good for about 5 days.

How to Enjoy 🥃
