“Sekanjabin (sometimes spelled sekanjubin or sekanjamin, among others) is a refreshing Persian drink, sometimes even prepared for medicinal purposes. Earliest references to this concoction date from the 10th century AD. The syrup keeps almost indefinitely without refrigeration, and the drink is particularly tasty with fruits. Enjoy!”

I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. After straining off the ginger, it was delicious to eat! When adding the water to make the drink, I found that a 4 to 1 ratio was best!

Crazy good. I LOVE ginger, and ginger ale. I can never find ginger ale with enough ginger for me. This was perfection. I used seltzer water instead of regular water to get my fizz on. One note I would like to make. The first time I made this I used jarred minced ginger. It does not have nearly enough flavor. Fresh ginger is imperative. My first attempt I cut the recipe down to five serving and I still ended up using nearly half a cup of jarred ginger. I really could not taste it. Another recipe on here that I tried said to use white balsamic. I used that in one of my experiments. I found that you can change up the profile of this just by playing around with your vinegar. I think when I get bored one day, I will try using vodka in or sherry in place of the vinegar just to see what would happen. Thanks again.

This is so good. I stopped drinking wine about a month ago and this is a great relaxing subsitute. I only used 2 1/2 cup of sugar. I poured it with ice and fresh lemons.... Soooo Good and good for you! Thanks
