  • Add water, ginger and cinnamon stick (if you’re using it) to a pot and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is reduced by half. This should take around 45 minutes.
  • Remove the ginger by pouring the liquid through a strainer into a bowl. Allow it liquid to cool to room temperature, then stir in honey.
  • Pour your ginger syrup in an airtight container such as a swing-top bottle or jar and store in the fridge.


Because this recipe contains honey, it should not be used in children under one. According to Rosemary Gladstar, the syrup should stay good from several weeks to months. If you are concerned that you might not be able to use it all in time, you may want to cut the recipe in half or freeze some in an ice cube tray for later.
