I Made My Own Ginger Ale Today

Recommended Posts

I made an infusion from fresh ginger, sweetened it, and added some to sparkling mineral water. This was SO good. Here's what I did.

diced some fresh ginger root (peel off the outer bark. cut thin slices, then cut them up in small pieces - maybe next time I'll try grating the ginger.) Ended up with about a tablespoon of ginger.

Dropped the ginger in about 1-1/2 cup of water that had come to a boil but was no longer boiling, and let it sit for about a half hour and then strained the ginger out of the water.

I sweetened the water with sugar and stevia - about 3 tsp of sugar and 1/8 tsp stevia.

I found the "tea" was strong enough that I could dilute it equal parts with more water.

Then, I poured about 1/4 cup of the undiulted ginger water into a glass and added mineral water for my own ginger ale.

Just wanted to share this with those of you who like ginger.

That sounds delicious!!! My mouth is watering.

I never know what to do with the rest of the ginger when I buy it for a recipe. This is what I'm going to do from now on.

What a great idea! I've made hot ginger tea many times when I wasn't feeling well, but never thought of making a cold drink with it. Since my favorite local ginger ale won't tell me if it's gluten-free, I'm especially grateful for the idea of making some hot stuff for myself!



The Queen of Hearts,

She made some tarts

All on a summer's day.

The Knave of Hearts,

He stole the tarts

And took them clean away.
