Homemade Ginger Syrup & Ginger Cocktail Recipes


You guys are going to love these ginger cocktail recipes and homemade ginger syrup! It’s incredibly easy to make the syrup and extremely versatile when it comes to mixing hand-crafted ginger cocktails. It also makes an awesome gift to give to friends and we’ve provided a printable download to use as tags or sticker labels. Now you ask, what can I do with this delicious ginger syrup? Well, you’re in luck because we spent a boozy day in the Sugar and Charm test kitchen (ha!) and created two refreshing hand-crafted cocktail recipes, Ginger Tonic and a Dark & Stormy, as well as a delicious homemade Ginger Ale using the ginger syrup! And it was worth every single taste test… I’m now set on always have ginger syrup on hand!

Homemade Ginger Syrup Recipe
1 1/2 cups fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 cups sugar
4 cups water
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Peel and chop the ginger. Place all of the ingredients into a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then reduce to a simmer on low heat for 1 hour. Strain the syrup (discard the ginger) into a bowl with a spout. Add in 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice. Using a funnel, pour syrup into medium sized glass jars. Tie or stick a label on it and enjoy!

    Hi Eden, thanks so much for posting this recipe! Can you provide more detail on how long this syrup will last? Do we need to refrigerate the syrup so it doesn’t spoil? Thanks again! You are wonderful!

      Hi Amanda!! You are so sweet! Thanks for the comment 🙂 The syrup lasts about a week in the fridge and it has to be refrigerated. Hope that helps! I will update the post too 🙂 XO
