Ginger syrup brings a potent, spicy air of mystery to drinks. It’s typically used in small amounts, so we think it’s generally fine to sub it in for any recipe that calls for ginger liqueur, and vice-versa.
Can’t find ginger syrup at the grocery store? It’s super-easy to make your own: just follow our simple syrup recipe, and toss in a one-inch-ish knob, thinly sliced, of fresh peeled ginger root. Remove it from the heat, let it steep for 30 minutes, and strain into a jar. Let it cool and store it in the fridge for up to a few weeks.
