Makes 3 Cups
Not only is this a refreshing drink, it can also be used for when you have an upset stomach, bloating or nausea. And, when you want a healthier cocktail, this is great with gin or vodka.
3 inch piece of fresh ginger root, peeled
3 cups of soda water (I used San Pellegrino)
Juice from ½ a lemon
Optional: If you want it sweet, add a tablespoon of raw natural honey
Optional: Fresh mint to serve
If you have a juicer, place the ginger root and the lemon into the juicer. Remove the juice and stir together with the remaining ingredients. I used a large mason jar and shook it all up.
If you don’t have a juicer, use a zester. It looks like a cheese grater, but is much smaller. Zest the ginger into a fine sieve that is placed over a bowl. Using a spoon, push down on the grated ginger to release all the juice into the bowl. Stir in all the remaining ingredients and voila, fresh ginger ale!
