Recipe type: beverage
Ingredients
  • 1 c. fresh ginger root
  • 2 c. water
  • ½ c. Raw Honey
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lime peel
  • Sparkling water (examples on Amazon)
  • Lime wedges
Instructions
  1. Peel the ginger root and thinly slice.
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the ginger root, water, honey, and lime peel. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool.
  4. Strain the ginger pieces and lime peel, and pour the cooled syrup into an airtight container.
  5. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  6. To prepare the ginger ale, mix together about 2 tablespoons of syrup with 6 ounces of sparkling water over ice. Stir gently to combine.
  7. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy.
Notes
Regarding the bubbles: You can use any type of sparkling water or club soda for these recipes. Keep in mind that your final product will mirror what you’re mixing in, so a sparkling water with small bubbles and lower carbonation will result in a soda of similar mouth feel. For us, we carbonate our still water using a Sodastream (on Amazon, aff. link).
