This ginger shot is made with raspberries, imparting a delightful taste and a vibrant red color to the ginger infusion.
I usually use frozen raspberries, but you can also choose fresh ones if you like. Sometimes, I swap raspberries for strawberries, and now and then, I mix both. And if you want a simpler ginger shot, you can skip the berries and just use ginger, honey, and lemon.

Mix it with your orange juice – a fusion of ginger and raspberries with orange juice.

Ginger Shot Prep Tips for Maximum Benefits
It’s great if you have a food thermometer when you make the ginger shot. You don’t want to over cook the ginger because it will loose some of the health benefits when you boil it. You want it to simmer up to 60°C. If you don’t have a food thermometer just take the pot from the heat before it starts to boil. The longer you let the ginger rest in the water, the stronger it becomes. I usually let it stand for 1 hours, before I strain it ( I like it when it’s spicy).
Customize the sweetness by adding honey to your preference. For a less sweet option, reduce the honey quantity. Additionally, store your ginger shot with raspberries in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
One shot of Ginger raspberry shot a day is a good intake.
