Ahhh, an ice cold drink, not too sweet, with a bit of zip — that’ ginger ale! And the homemade stuff is truly awesome! And, since it’s your own, you may make it as sweet as you like.
If you have a soda stream machine, you can use that to make the sparkling water, or use club soda. Here’s how to do it:
Almost Instant Ginger Ale
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 2 to 4 tablespoons simple syrup
- Ice cold sparkling water
Place ginger in the bottom of a tall glass. Top off with simple syrup and ice, then SLOWLY add the sparkling water, as it will fizz up.
Makes one serving.
