Ginger Concentrate

Make this concentrate to make a really spicy, low sugar ginger beer easily. Most ginger beer requires a fermentation period, but this version works just as well and allows you to combine seltzer with the concentrate for a quicker, very flavorful beverage. Recipe is adapted from CookieandKate.com.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 10 min


1 cup, about 8 servings


  • 1/2 pound fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  1. In a blender or food processor, process the ginger and 1/2 cup water for a few minutes until it turns to liquid.  Strain the juice into a large bowl.  Transfer the ginger pulp back to the blender or food processor and add another 1/4 cup of water.  Puree again, it shouldn’t need as long and strain again.  Do this one more time with another 1/4 cup of water.  Press on the solids with the back of a spoon to get out all the flavor.
  2. Discard the solids, pour the ginger liquid back into blender with lime juice and sugar, process for 30 seconds.
  3. Use about 2 ounces of the concentrate to 8 ounces of seltzer to make a ginger beer to enjoy on it’s own or in a flavorful cocktail.
  4. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks. Shake before serving.
