Don’t like lemon? Make a ginger lime shot, and replace the 4 lemons with 5 limes! I like adding a bit of cayenne as well, for a kick. But you can choose to add heat, or not.

Shopping List for Pressed Ginger Shots:

  • Ginger root – Get fresh ginger for these homemade ginger shots. You can find ginger root in the produce section of your grocery store.
  • Lemons – Just as with the ginger, you’ll want to get fresh lemons as well, ideally (if you can afford them) organic lemons.
  • Coconut water – Coconut water has lots of amazing healthy benefits (more on benefits below) and you can often find it in the bottled juice section of the store.
  • Honey (or maple syrup) – I like to make this with honey, but if you looking to make a vegan ginger shot, choose maple syrup instead.
  • Cayenne pepper – This ingredient is optional, and if you don’t like spicy food, skip it! But I like the kick of heat in this drink and it comes with great health benefits as well!

Health Benefits of Ginger Shots

So… what are ginger shots good for? I made this recipe for immunity boosting properties, but it does so much more!

Ginger shots have a number of health benefits… but to get the most out of them, it’s best you make homemade ginger shots.

As soon as you make the juice, it starts to oxidize (like when an apple turns brown after cutting). And in this process you lose lots of nutrients. So it’s best to get the freshest juice, and you won’t get that at the store, you’ll get it in your kitchen!
