I just thought I'd share another simple drink idea, for rainy days ahead.
I'm not sure why, but I have been craving the spiciness of ginger lately, so I incorporated it into my night time hot drink ritual.
My sweetener of choice for this drink is honey—I find it has a milder flavour than maple syrup, so it doesn't compete with the ginger. I tend to add a lot of ginger and let it steep for a while to ensure a strong ginger taste—I love it, but feel free to add less.
Fresh Ginger Steamer
- fresh ginger, peeled and slice (I usually use 4 thick slices...I like it very gingery)
- 1 cup milk (I used skim)
- 1 cup water
- 20 grams (1 Tbsp) honey
1. Prepare your ginger, any amount that suits your tastes. In a saucepan, place ginger and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 30 seconds.
2. Add your cup of milk and bring to desired temperature (do not boil).
3. Meanwhile, measure honey into awaiting mug.
