GINGER ALE




A no-fuss, 3-ingredient ginger ale recipe. What more could you ask for?
If you're as obsessed with ginger as I am then this drink will definitely hit the spot.
Serve chilled and top your glass up with ice for a cool but fiery summer drink.


Ingredients
- 1 cup grated fresh ginger
- 1 cup coconut sugar/brown sugar
- sparkling water

Grate approx. 1 cup of fresh ginger.



Fill a saucepan with water and add the grated ginger. Allow to simmer for 30 mins then bring to a boil for another 15 mins to form a ginger syrup. Allow to cool.



Strain the liquid.


Pour into a clean bottle and fill up with sparkling water.
Serve chilled.

    1. The ginger taste is stronger in my recipe..more heat at the back of your throat. And not as sugary as the other ginger ales I've tried.

  2. What are the measurements for the syrup and sparkling water?

  3. I didn't really note down exact measurements with this one, I just went by taste and added more or less of each ingredient until I had the ginger flavour I wanted. But as a rough guide I'd say approx. 300-400ml of the syrup to 1 litre of sparkling water.
