Ginger shots (and something about homemade toffifee)

For some time I have wanted to try to make my own ginger shots – in other ways than by juicing.

Last week when searching through my go-to blog when in need of good recipes Valdemarsro, I realized that she also had a recipe for a ginger shot that I had to try (even though I was actually searching for a good cake recipe…)

The ginger shot recipe is simple:

• 3 dl water
• 50 g ginger
• 3 lemons, the juice hereof
• 1 bag of chamomile tea
• 1 tbsp. of dried thyme or 3 fresh twigs of thyme
• 2 tbsp. honey

All you have to do is to peel the ginger and cut it into smaller pieces. Add the water and ginger to a small pot and let it boil for 20 minutes while keeping the lid on. After 20 minutes remove the pot from the heat and add the teabag, the thyme and the lemon juice. Let it cool down, filter it and add the honey.

I keep my ginger “mix” in a small bottle in the fridge. I do the shot a couple of times a day and love the “pick-me-up” feeling that comes from it. Ginger is said to be anti-inflammatory which means that we probably all could need a shot or two a day during flu season.

I actually did not add neither thyme nor honey this time because I did not have them at hand and the shot is still great.

It can be a bit dangerous to enter into Ann-Christine’s treasure chest of recipes. I always end up wanting to make falafels, cinnamon buns, pasta, enchiladas etc. This time I came across these homemade toffifees that I have to try at some point. I cannot believe how good they look…
