Ginger ale is awesome for an upset stomach and joint pains. It also tastes great. Here is super simple recipe!
- 4 cups water
- 2 cups sliced fresh ginger root (not necessary to peel)
- 2 Tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- Sparkling mineral water or club soda
In a medium saucepan, combine water and ginger over high heat. Once boiling, lower heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for one hour. Remove lid and continue to simmer 30 more minutes. Take off heat and strain mixture to remove ginger. Stir in lemon and honey. Cool completely. This is your ginger syrup.
To make ginger ale, put a handful of ice into a glass. Add ¼ cup ginger syrup, and fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water. Enjoy!
