Ginger soda with a zing!

This homemade soda is easy to make and so refreshing after a long day of working in your garden! Just few simple ingredients is all you will need!

What you need:Ginger-Root1

  • 1 hunk of ginger root, chopped (more ginger will give you more zing, use less for a less potent batch)
  • Raw Honey
  • 2-3 lemons- wedged
  • 1-2 12oz bottles club soda or unflavored mineral water

Preparation:

  • Simmer the ginger in a small pot of water for 20-30 minutes the same way as you would cook rice (with the lid on and at a low temperature)
  • Allow the ginger to steep for 1-3 hours longer (or even overnight!) after you are finished simmering it- the longer you let it steep, the stronger the flavor
  • Strain the ginger water by using cheesecloth and pouring the ginger water in to a large pitcher
  • Add raw honey to taste (1-2 T)- more will give you a sweeter flavor
  • Fill 16oz glasses with ice, 2/3 ginger water, 1/3 club soda (or mineral water), and garnish with a lemon wedge
  • Enjoy!
