  • 1 cup of sugar,or honey, or maple syrup


  • Add 2 tbsp of a ginger based tincture – If you are adding alcohol or tincture to your mixture, pour it into the bottle, using enough to fill a quarter of the bottle space (adding alcohol to the syrup while it’s still hot negates its stabilizing properties). Finally, pour cooled syrup into the bottle, shake to combine


  • Start with a 1:1 ratio of herb and water, and boil water in a pot, then add the herb at a 1:1 ratio.
