  • To "gin up" is similar to "rev up". It means to speed up an activity with a goal in mind. One "gins up" a kitchen, bar, caterer and band for a party. One "gins up" for an experiment by collecting necessary lab equipment. One gets "ginned up" about an interesting topic.

    The subtle difference between "gin up" and "rev up" is that "gin up" implies creating something from nothing with an intent to create action. For example, an empty hall becomes a party, a dormant science room becomes a laboratory, a conversation becomes a heated debate. "Rev up" (like an engine) implies an existing structure or system that is sped up from its present state.
