- 2 quarter-sized slices fresh ginger, bruised
- 1 garlic clove, peeled and cut into thin strips (or you can leave it whole)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups hot water (not boiling)
- Combine the ingredients in a clean and sterilized pint (500 mL) bottle or jar. Pour in about 2 cups of hot water and let the mixture steep at room temperature overnight.
- Refrigerate in the morning.
