Ingredients

  • 2 inches (30 g) freshly, sliced ginger root
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup cane sugar or granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp matcha green tea powder
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 5 large lemons)
  • favorite sparkling water
  • sliced lemon for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • In a small saucepan, add sliced ginger and water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine cane sugar and matcha in a liquid measuring cup that will be large enough to stir in the ginger infused water later.
  • After 10 minutes of simmering the fresh ginger and water, use a slotted spoon to remove the sliced ginger from the ginger-infused water. Strain through a fine, mesh sieve if desired.
  • Carefully pour the ginger-infused water over the matcha sugar and immediately begin stirring. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved in the hot water. Allow this to cool to room temperature.
  • To serve, add 1-2 oz. of the matcha-ginger syrup to a drinking glass (start with less and add more if desired). Fill glass with ice followed by 2-3 oz. of fresh lemon juice. Top each serving with sparkling water and garnish with a lemon slice.

Notes

Store extra matcha-ginger syrup in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.  Use leftover syrup to make more lemonades or experiment with cocktails, coffees, teas, smoothies and baked goods to use up any syrup you have left.
