Candied Ginger Cordial


A Spicy, balanced, and packed with flavor. Enjoy this Candied Ginger Cordial during a warm summer evening.


A few days ago, I bought myself some healthy candied ginger as after-dinner treat. When I tasted it, I realized how wonderful an addition they would be to some vodka to create a spicy alternative to limoncello.
The only drawback of candied ginger is the lack of the lovely citrus notes of the fresh root, so to reinstate a little of this uplifting aromas I decided to add a strip of lemon peel in the infusion.
In my recipe I also decided to rinse the candied ginger pieces out of their sugar coating because I feared that it could take the sweetness level of the liquor out of control. If you don’t mind your digestive liquors to be on the sweet side, please feel free to skip this step.


Naturally, as always with very simple recipe, the quality of the ingredients is paramount so please use only products you adore.


Candied Ginger Cordial
Recipe by:
Difficulty: Easy
Great for: Cocktails
  • 30g ginger
  • 1" piece of lemon peel
  • 100ml vodka
  • 1tsp sugar or to taste
  1. Optional: Wash the ginger pieces in cold water to remove most of their sugar coating. Pat the dry using paper towels.
  2. Cut the candied ginger in small pieces crosswise; transfer them in the canister of an iSi whipper, add the julienned lemon peel, the vodka, and close tight. Charge the canister with two N2O cartridges shaking well after each addition and let infuse for roughly 8 minutes shaking every now and then.
  3. At the end of the infusion time, point the whipper nozzle away from you and discharge the compressed air in it all in one go.
  4. Strain the infused vodka through a fine meshed sieve into a glass and press on the solids to extract as much of their liquids as possible.
  5. Add the sugar to the infused liquid (if you haven't washed the candied ginger at the beginning, taste the liquor to check its sweetness first) and stir until dissolved. If you add too much sugar, it may not dissolve completely; in this case try adding 1 teaspoon of water to it.
  6. Enjoy this candied ginger cordial nicely cold with perhaps a few slices of pickled ginger on the side.

    My video player in joomla doesn’t play videos in firefox if the latest display player actually installed. Let me have it like a professional player to show a dialog saying: “Do you wish to install adobe flash player 10” or how it says when you go to a professional website so users do not have to search and download flash player by hand….. Does anyone know, how to do this?.
