To prepare ginger juice, you will need ginger root, sugar, flavoured essence, vanilla sugar and ginger powder juice, which is optional.
Wash ginger and cut it into pieces. The next step is to blend or pound it. Traditionally this is done in the mortar, but you can simply put it in a blender with a small amount of water and let it do its magic. When blended, it needs to be strained to separate the liquid from the paste. Add water and the rest of the ingredients and mix until dissolved. Cool it down, and ginger juice is ready for drinking. You can add the amount of sugar to the taste - you can also skip the flavour essence and powder juice and keep it as natural as possible.
