We will reveal a powerful ginger ale which is made from fresh, as well as dried ginger, sugar and some lemon juice. Its results are remarkable!
- 200 grams peeled and finely chopped ginger
- 450 ml filtrated water
- 225 grams sugar
- 115 ml sparkling water
- Several drops of lime juice
- Lemon slices
Pour the filtered water in a pot and bring it to boil. Add the ginger in the boiling water. Reduce the heat and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the stove and leave it for 20 minutes. Strain the liquid from the ginger. Now you need to prepare the syrup in a separate bowl: dissolve the sugar with 1 cup of the boiled water. Mix half a cup of the ginger juice with 1/3 of a cup of the syrup and half a cup of the sparkling water. Add some organic honey and lime juice. Garnish the glass with lemon slices.
