Ginger Concentrate (with a juicer or high-powered blender)

Keep this "concentrate" in the fridge for up to 1 week. Yes, I know it's diluted with water and not a concentrate, but ginger juice is STRONG, and you're going to dilute it even more when you make the mocktail. I make up a batch of this every week so I can enjoy my perfect drink any time!

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 inch piece of ginger root washed
  • pure water to fill a pint-size Mason jar

Instructions

  1. Run the ginger root through your juicer.
  2. Take that bright yellow juice and pour it into a pint-size Mason jar.
  3. Fill with water. This is the "concentrate" that you can keep in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  4. Pull it out any time you feel like refreshing yourself with this mocktail.

Recipe Notes

*Note from Wardee: You can "juice" ginger using a Vitamix or BlendTec by blending the (peeled) ginger root and some water until it's as smooth as possible. Then strain out the ginger fibers by pouring the mixture through fine cheesecloth or a fine strainer, catching the juice in a bowl or jar. Now combine the juice with more water to fill a pint-size jar. Click here to see this on Instagram.
