Orlando Franklin McCray’s Ginger Syrup

Orlando Franklin McCray, Blind Barber | New York

While there are countless recipes for ginger syrup, we enjoy the simplicity of Orlando Franklin McCray’s, which gets an extra spicy kick from red pepper flakes. 

  • 1 part ginger juice, extracted using a juicer
  • 1 part white sugar
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes (or more, to taste)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until dissolved.
  2. Fine strain into a sealable container and let cool before using.
