1-2 inches of fresh ginger root
2 cups of water
Honey or lemon (optional, for added flavor)
Start by peeling the ginger root and then thinly slice it or grate it.
In a saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
Add the sliced or grated ginger to the boiling water.
Reduce the heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. This will allow the ginger to infuse its flavor into the water.
After simmering, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool slightly.
If desired, you can add a teaspoon of honey or a squeeze of lemon for added flavor.
Strain the ginger water into a cup or mug to remove the ginger pieces.
Your ginger water is ready to drink! Enjoy it hot or let it cool down for a refreshing cold beverage.
Ginger water is known for its potential health benefits, including aiding digestion and providing a warming sensation. It can be a soothing and delicious drink.
