What is a “Ginger Shot”?

Ginger Shots are compact drinks made from fresh ginger root juice or grated ginger. They are made by extracting fresh ginger root juice or by combining grated fresh ginger or ground ginger with other juices (lemon, apple, orange, pineapple, etc).

It is a popular drink for its stimulating properties and numerous health benefits. Ginger shots are often consumed as a natural remedy for a variety of ailments, including nausea, headaches and menstrual pain. They are also used to boost the immune system, improve digestion, reduce inflammation and promote blood circulation.

Ginger shots can be consumed neat, or mixed with other ingredients such as lemon, honey or mint to enhance their taste and health effects. Spices (turmeric, pepper, cinnamon) and chilli (cayenne, Espelette, bird’s eye chilli) are also often added. More concentrated than a simple juice or smoothie, the Ginger Shot allows the nutrients to penetrate the body very quickly, which energises it instantly and gives the sensation of an immediate boost!

They are often sold in individual bottles, ready to be consumed for a quick and easy dose of fresh ginger. Ginger shots can also be made at home using a juicer or blender to extract the fresh ginger juice.
