6 egg yolks
6 tablespoons ginger liqueur
6 tablespoons ginger ale
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup sugar
pinch of alt
½ teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

 In bain marie (a metal bowl standing in a shallow pan of simmering water), whisk the egg yolks, liqueur, ginger, sugar and salt over simmering water, constantly whisking until the mixture is light and fluffy and will retain the mark of the whisk on its surface for a moment. Immediately remove the sabayon from heat. Stir in lemon juice and vanilla extract. Serve warm or cover with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming and chill.
