Recipe for Ginger Shots
Ginger, pineapple, and lime are the only three ingredients in this easy-to-make ginger shot recipe. It’s one of my favorite beverages, and I usually make it around the cold and flu season, when I’m feeling a little under the weather.
- Fresh ginger
How to Prepare Ginger Snaps
Depending on how many shots you prepare, preparing this recipe for ginger shots at home takes about ten minutes from start to finish. I usually juice one full pineapple at a time, combining two to four limes, approximately six 1-inch pieces of ginger, and then filling these little containers I got from Smart and Final with the shots. These ginger shots taste a little sweeter and are a little easier to drink thanks to the pineapple.
- Prep Ginger and Fruit. Peel and chop fresh ginger, pineapple and lime.
- Juice. Push the ginger, pineapple and lime through the tube feeder on a juicer. If you don’t have a juicer, then blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender and strain though a fine mesh sieve and discard any remaining pieces of fruit and ginger.
- Serve. Pour about 1/3 cup for each shot
Why These Ginger Shots Are So Great
Ginger shots are a condensed beverage with a ton of nutritional benefits, in case you were wondering. Ginger belongs to the same family of plants as cardamom and turmeric. The components in ginger known as ketones and gingerols give it its spicy flavor. Its antioxidant content is second only to that of pomegranates and some berries. First of all Since ginger shots don’t usually make for the most enjoyable drinks, I like to add pineapple to mine to give them a slight sweetness and make them a little more palatable. Bromelain, magnesium, and vitamin C are all abundant in pineapples.
