Ginger Tea (without a juicer)
If you don't have a juicer or high-powered blender, you can make ginger tea for your mocktail -- which is essentially the same as making ginger root tea.
3 to 4
piece of ginger root
Peel and dice or grate the ginger root. If dicing, the pieces should be about 1/8 inch cubes.
Add the ginger and water to a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
Strain the ginger out, cool, and store the ginger tea in a pint-size Mason jar in your fridge for up to a week.
*Be aware that this ginger tea will not be as strong the ginger concentrate recipe above. I prefer the juicer method because I absolutely delight in that stronger ginger flavor.
