Re: The most versatile recipe's ever
Ginger Simple Syrup
This is so versatile you can use it in smoothies, rated "G" drinks, and adult beverages.
True simple syrup is one c sugar and one c water.
I like to add another TBSP of sugar to mine.
bring to a boil on stove on med heat.
cook just till sugar is dissolved and syrup is clear. Add ginger stir and turn off heat. Cover saucepan with it's lid, and cool to just warm.
(While the liquid is heating up and it is coming to a boil, cut the skin off of the ginger. Use fresh ginger, dice it and give it a rough chop, or prepare before hand. add to the just ready simple syrup.)
To use in beverages;
Use one part ginger simple syrup to two parts Sparkling Water, (not flavored or sweetened), or use in smoothies.
Use Rhum, vodka, or whatever to make it adult.
You can do just about anything with simple syrup.
You can make it plain, I have three flavors in my fridge at all times. Kids love it.
Orange, raspberry, lemon, lime, ginger etc...and always plain.
