Making your own ginger shots: how do you do that?

Must Try

Ginger shots, who doesn’t know them. Small bottles with ginger concentrate that are praised for their positive effect on your immune system. We’ll leave it up to you whether it all works. But we can tell you something about how to make it the best.

The basics of ginger shots

The basis of a ginger shot – open target – is of course fresh ginger, but the second ingredient is (almost always) lemon juice. The ginger is first grated with or without peel and then mixed with the squeezed lemon. If you mix these together with a blender or chopper (with a few drops of liquid) and you sieve it well, then you have the basis of the ginger shot.

The ratio that you can use for 1 shot is approximately juice of 1 lemon and 3 cm ginger, but you can of course adjust this to your own taste.

Couple of tips:

  1. Never drink too much of this ginger drink in one go, only a shot (that’s why it’s called that), because that is already very intense.
  2. Make a whole batch in 1 go and store it in your ice cube tray in the freezer, then you can easily start the day with it.
  3. You can eat the peel of a piece of washed ginger root just fine (save a lot of time!). If you sieve well, you won’t have that problem.
  4. Do you work with a juicer? Then you often no longer need to add moisture.


The taste of ginger and lemon juice on an empty stomach can be quite intense, so luckily the most common variety is with cayenne pepper – wait that’s pretty intense? Starting the day with cayenne pepper, ginger and lemon juice makes you a hero in our eyes, so kudos to all those tough guys.

Do you think that hot kick is a bit too intense? You can take the edge off with small additions, such as with a little bit of honey, pineapple juice or coconut milk. But there are also slightly milder variants by adding a little bit of apple, carrot or spinach juice, they go well with the ginger flavor and give cool colors to the shots. gives a nice recipe for three different types of ginger shots.

But also think lavender, aloe vera, mint or verveine, turmeric, cinnamon or star anise for extra taste of your ginger shot and your day starts like a charm.
