Making ginger ale
I just drank my first glass of homemade ginger ale, and it won't be the last. It was bubbly, sweet, and delicious! Credit goes to David Fankhauser's website for the instructions. Yes, it really is that easy. No, it doesn't taste yeasty or beer-like. I actually doubled the ginger, because I love ginger, and I thought it was just right.
I only drink all-natural beverages -- water, coffee, tea, and wine, but yes, I have an urge for something different every now and then. In summer, I often make lemon balm-spearmint iced tea, which is a favorite. Now I have even more options. I will be trying the cream soda from Fankhauser's site (on the root beer page), and I have a few ideas of my own for other bubbly beverages. Of course, I'll share them with you as I get them figured out.
