Homemade Ginger Ale Recipes
There are two types of ginger ale recipes, those with yeast to produce carbonation, and those with added carbonated water. The Ginger Ale Authority has homemade ginger ale recipes for both of course.
1 cup peeled, finely chopped ginger
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. Add ginger. Reduce heat to medium low and let ginger sit in the simmering water for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for 20 minutes. Strain liquid through a fine mesh strainer. Discard ginger pieces.
2 In a separate saucepan, make the Simple Syrup by dissolving 1 cup granulated sugar into 1 cup of boiling water. Set aside.
3 Make individual (tall) glasses of ginger ale by mixing 1/2 cup of ginger water with 1/3 cup of Simple Syrup and 1/2 cup of club soda. Add a few drops of fresh lime juice and a lime wedge to each glass.
Makes four servings.
