Apple Ginger Simple Syrup Recipe

To make an apple ginger simple syrup you actually have to make 2 syrups and then combine them.

Ginger Syrup
First let’s start with the ginger syrup. Grate and peel 2-3 large pieces of ginger. I know, I didn’t want to peel them at first either but trust me, it pays off. Then start 3 cups of water boiling. Once boiling, mix in 2 cups of dark brown sugar. Once the sugar is absorbed, add the ginger and boil about another 3 minutes. Set aside and move on to the next part.

Apple Syrup
Find an apple cider that you really like. Put 4 cups of it in a pan and bring to a boil. Add 1 cup of brown sugar to the cider and continue to boil until the sugar is gone and there’s only about 2.5 cups of cider left. Cool to room temp.

Now that both syrups are done it’s time to mix. Combine both syrups in a bottle (an old booze bottle will do), shake and enjoy.

We really enjoyed this with bourbon, rye, rum and vodka. You can create an apple mule with this recipe or an apple presbyterian.
