People always ask me where I come up with the recipes that I post on the blog. I wish that I had an elaborate system and that I scheduled all my choices days in advance. Unfortunately, my method is much more random. For example, the other day I had a cup of lemon tea with some Ginger Syrup in it, and I instantly became fixated on creating it at home. “How hard can it be?” I thought as I inhaled that cup of tea.
Turns out- I was right! Making Ginger Syrup is not only extremely easy, but the possibilities for using it are endless. Have you ever had a Homemade Ginger Ale with strong gingery taste and a tart lime wedge? Or did you know that when you make Ginger Syrup you actually are making Candied Ginger in the process? And don’t even get me started on how many different cocktails you could make with this. I’m thinking this syrup with some bourbon and a splash of soda would be amazing don’t you?
It’s freezing today in NYC, and I can’t wait to have another cup of lemon tea with some of this deliciousness mixed in. Have a great weekend!
