3/4 cup water

Instructions
1. Place ginger and water into a high powered blender and blend for about 60 seconds. Place a cheese cloth or nut milk bag over a medium size bowl. Pour ginger water into the bag, and once the ginger water has drained out raise the bag a little and squeeze lightly to get all the ginger water out. Discard ginger pulp and transfer ginger water to a mason jar.*
