If you’re on prescribed medication, have a kidney or digestive disorder (including gall bladder issues), are pregnant or breastfeeding, check with your healthcare professional before drinking these shots.



  • STEP 1

    Chop the ginger into small chunks. Tip into a blender with the apple and lemon juice and blitz for a few minutes until very smooth.

  • STEP 2

    Set a very fine sieve over a jug. You could also line a regular sieve with a piece of muslin or a clean, thin tea towel. Tip the juice into the sieve and leave it to drain, then press the remaining pulp with the back of a ladle until dry. If you’re using a cloth, twist to squeeze all the juice out. Drink straightaway or decant into a bottle. Will keep chilled for up to four days. Shake well before serving.

Recipe tips

Make as much as you want: We tried many different quantities of ginger to liquid and the amount we liked most for a shot that was still very gingery but not overpowering was 15g ginger per 100ml liquid. This makes a 100ml serving or two 50ml shots. Use these proportions to make as much or as little ginger juice as you'd like.
Make with pineapple: Pineapple juice can replace the apple juice for a more tropical flavour.
Just ginger: If you don’t want to use fruit juice you can simply replace with the same amount of water, but you might need to sweeten with honey to taste.
Turmeric & ginger juice: To add the health benefits of fresh turmeric to your shots simply swap half the ginger for turmeric prepared the same way as the ginger.
