Ginger Martini

No ratings yet

Ginger spices up this delectable cocktail.

This simple martini recipe allows the sweet and spicy flavor of ginger to shine for the perfect, sexy winter cocktail. It’s an easy to follow martini recipe, and it’s packed with flavor. For an added bonus, ginger can be good for colds and it’s anti-inflammatory.

This drink can, of course, be made without alcohol. To make this a mocktini, simply use sparkling water such as seltzer, mineral water, or club soda instead of the alcohol. Just be sure to stir rather than shake the martini before pouring it through a strainer if a carbonated water is used.

Vodka and gin both go well with the syrup in this ginger martini.

For the martini:

  • 3 ounces vodka or gin 3 shot glasses full
  • 1/2 to 1 ounce ginger syrup recipe follows
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime juice freshly squeezed
  • ice

For the ginger syrup:

  • 4 inches ginger root finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar or 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar or sucanat


To make the ginger syrup:

  • Chop the ginger root, peel on, in the food processor or by hand.
  • Bring the sweetener, ginger, and water to a boil over medium heat, stirring and pressing on the ginger pieces to release the juice. Once a syrupy consistency is reached, after about 5 to 10 minutes, remove from the heat and allow it to cool in another container.

To make the martini:

  • Shake vodka, ice, and ¼ cup syrup in a cocktail shaker or in a closed container with a lid for about 30 seconds or until the drink is cold. Pour through a cocktail strainer or other fine mesh strainer (to catch the ice and ginger pieces) and into a martini glass, and serve. Ginger Martini can be served with a slice of lime on the edge of the glass or in the drink.
