Here is a recipe for making ginger ale at home:
* 1 cup water
* 1/2 cup grated ginger root
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup club soda
* Lime wedges, for garnish (optional)
1. In a small saucepan, combine the water and ginger root. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the ginger is soft.
2. Remove the ginger from the heat and let it cool slightly. Strain the ginger water into a glass jar or container.
3. Add the sugar to the ginger water and stir until it dissolves.
4. Refrigerate the ginger syrup for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
5. When you’re ready to make your ginger ale, combine the ginger syrup and club soda in a glass. Stir to combine.
6. Serve over ice and garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
* For a stronger ginger flavor, use more ginger root.
* If you don’t have club soda, you can use sparkling water or seltzer water.
* You can also add other flavors to your ginger ale, such as lemon, lime, or mint.
* Ginger ale is a great drink to have on a hot day. It’s also a good choice if you’re feeling sick, as ginger has anti-inflammatory properties.
