Ginger shots are perfect for winter time when everyone seems to be getting over the sniffles.

Has anyone ever suggested that you take a ginger shot when you’re feeling under the weather?

That might be because ginger has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, and is known to give your immune system a healthy boost! More recent studies have even started to show signs that ginger can help lower blood sugar levels too! 

What can’t she do?!

Drinking ginger shots has numerous health benefits and these tiny goldmines are available at most grocery stores but have you noticed they are also very expensive

Don’t be deterred from making these homemade ginger shots yourself. You don’t need any fancy machinery – just a blender and a fine-mesh strainer!

Not a fan of ginger’s strong flavor? The lemon juice, orange juice, and honey create a perfect balance that we think even a ginger skeptic can appreciate.

Batch these ginger shots ahead of time as they keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days

Cheers to a healthy winter season!
