First of all, the first question: why the topic Ginger Shot in May? Very easily! Unfortunately, April has still not given way to May. The temperatures and the humid weather out there are about to trigger the next wave of colds and it is advisable to always have some ginger in the house. But since I have absolutely no Ginger tea As a fan, I was thrilled when I saw ginger shots at Edeka. If you buy ginger shots in the supermarket, the drink is in small - I guess 4cl - bottles. The small all-rounders cost EUR 1,59, no bargain for such a small drink. A good reason for me to introduce you to my current favorite recipe. I always try my best to make my recipes as tasty as possible for you.

How can ginger help me

I think most know ginger as Home remedies for colds and with flu. It relieves the typical symptoms and boosts that Immune system at. Ginger also has a supportive effect, at least in healing, in the following diseases.
  • Cold & Influenza Infection
  • Chronic cough & bronchitis
  • Gastrointestinal complaints
  • Nausea, motion sickness & seasickness
  • menstrual cramps
  • Nausea during pregnancy
  • Arthritis, arthrosis & rheumatism
  • Pain, Headaches & Migraines
  • Diet & Detox
Since I've only used the healing properties in case of a cold or flu as an old Home Remedies knew, I was positively surprised by the versatility of ginger. Above all, the mix of ginger and lemon strengthens our immune system.

Why is ginger so healthy

As with all medicinal plants, herbs and spices, the healing effect of ginger is of course due to its ingredients. In the Ginger Root There is more inside than you might think from the outside. Ginger consists of over 160 ingredients, among other things:
Iron, vitamins (vitamin C + B6), calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, as well as some essential oils that consist mainly of zingiberol, zingiberene and pungent substances (gingerols and shoagols) and diarylhetanoids.
But that should suffice as a theoretical part for now. Because actually you are here for the recipe for the loved one Ginger shot to get.

Recipe: Ginger Shot

In my experiment I ended up with approx. 400ml Ginger Shot made for me, that just in advance so that you can convert it yourself. That means with a ginger shot of 4cl = 40ml you have approx. 10 servings of ginger shot here. It took me about 30 minutes from assembly to filling, if you do it relaxed in front of the TV in the evening, it's a really quick thing.

Ingredients for about 400ml Ginger Shot

  • 1 large and fresh (soft) ginger root
  • 4 lemons
  • apple juice (without sugar)
  • 1-2 tbsp turmeric (optional)


With these ingredients you can healthy and sugar-free ginger shot produce for your use. I then simply filled the liquid into a clean glass with a lid. Smoothie glass bottles with screw caps are ideal for this.


First you peel them ginger root coarsely, that also works quite well with a vegetable peeler. It doesn't matter if there's a little peel left on it. The peel just likes to clog the onion press. Then you cut it ginger into small pieces, the size of the pieces depends on the size of your onion press. Cut the pieces small enough to fit in the onion press.

Now put the pieces in the press and press. It is best to use a measuring cup with a large opening. After each pressing process, you should clean the onion press with a knife, otherwise you will press too much of the root into the juice. Of course, a little pulp doesn't do anything.

Lemon Squeezing

Now that your wrist hurts a little, you go Lemons at. To do this, you take a standard orange press (may cost EUR 1) and squeeze out the halved lemons. This is really fast and you get a lot of lemon juice. The lemon juice is now poured into the ginger juice. That Turmeric must be peeled and grated. Please be careful, turmeric, like curry, leaves yellow stains that are difficult to remove. Although turmeric looks very similar to ginger root, it tastes very different from ginger. Turmeric is a little bitter and spicy, not hot.

Now pour the apple juice into the measuring cup until you have reached approx. 400ml.
Now all you have to do is pour the liquid, the finished ginger shot, into a bottle and put it in the fridge, it tastes best well chilled.

Drink Ginger Shot

I always fill a little of the chilled ginger shot into a glass to drink. So Pi mal eye I would say 40ml. The ginger will sting your throat a little, especially when it's irritated by a cold, but it's extremely beneficial. When I have a cold, I immediately notice relief in my throat, nose and airways.


Alternative preparation in the Vitamix

I am now Ginger Shot Pro and would therefore like to introduce you to my optimized preparation.


  • 1 large and fresh (soft) ginger root
  • 2-3 lemons
  • 1 Orange
  • apple juice (without sugar)


You peel the ginger root and cut it into approx. 3cm pieces. First you put this in the blender. Then you squeeze the lemons and an orange as usual and pour the juice into the Vitamix. Now top up with apple juice. I fill that Vitamix always up to about 1200ml and then throw the mixer on. I always run through two mixing processes in smoothie mode so that the ginger root is completely chopped up. Because in this case the entire ginger root is in the blender and we don't just use the pressed juice, we have a much higher proportion of ginger as a result and can produce a lot more juice. You now have ginger shots for at least a week.
It's definitely worth it!
