What does GINGER taste like?
Ginger is a spicy flavor described as spicy, aromatic, or earthy. It can also be described as woody, earthy, or peppery, depending on your preference.
Ginger is most famous for its remarkable ability to neutralize other food items’ flavors and enhance ginger’s natural sweetness while neutralizing bitterness and sharp flavors.
It’s why ginger works well, along with the apple cider vinegar used for Good Girl Moonshine drinks!
In making juice from ginger, it’s recommended to utilize fresh ginger, not old ginger.
Old ginger makes the drinking ginger taste bitter and won’t produce the same amount of juice as fresh ginger.
How to Make Ginger Juice
Making your ginger juice is easy. It requires only three ingredients and can take up to 20 minutes. It’s simple to do using a blender or bullet and a food processor. Ginger juice can be served as a refreshing cold drink during hot summer days or as warm as ginger tea in cold winter.
It’s also great for mix-ins for cocktails, the sauce base, or cooking rice.
Prepare and measure the ginger. Peel the skin of the ginger. If your ginger isn’t too dirty, you can clean it. Remove any hard parts, knobs, sharp pieces, or crevices that collect dirt.
The ginger can be cut into 1 to 2 pieces to make it easier for the blender to break it down.
The ginger pieces and water into a blender, along with sugar and lemon juice (if you are using them). Blend for 30-60 seconds until the ginger pieces are all gone.
Use a fine sieve or milk bag to separate the pulp. Your shot is now ready!
Here are some additional ingredients that are delicious using ginger juice:
- Fresh herbs! Basil and mint, rosemary, and thyme taste great by consuming ginger juice. Begin making 2 cups of freshly cut herbs and enjoy the flavor. Lemongrass can also be a good addition.
- Vanilla extract. Ginger and vanilla are a perfect match because vanilla is sweet and calming compared to ginger’s flamboyant heat! Begin with 1 teaspoon for one cup of juice from ginger.
- Citrus juice. Lime juice, lemon juice, and orange juice can all be included in this dish.
