Ginger shot recipe – RAW FOOD
- 14 ounces (oz) of fresh ginger
- 2 lemons
- 1 liquid quart/4 cups of water
- Honey after taste, about 3 tablespoons
Wash and clean the ginger carefully, you don´t have to peel it but cut of ”the tops”. Cut the ginger into smaller pieces and put the pieces in your mixer/blender. Add half of the water, 2 cups, and blend it. Add the rest of the water and blend again. Leave the mixture in the blender for an hour. Give it a short blend 2-3 times to make sure you bring out all the good stuff in the ginger. End with a short blend and pour the mixture into a fine mesh strainer and let it drain into a bowl. Press out the last liquid with a spoon. Add the juice from two lemons and some honey. Mix it and pour it into nice bottles.
Keep your ginger shot in the refrigerator. Shake the bottle before you pour it into small glasses, about 2-3 tablespoons. Do a shot every morning before breakfast! And beware…. It´s addictive.
The ginger shot will last for about two weeks for two persons.
