Homemade Ginger Ale


  • 4 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 2 cups seltzer water
  • Lemon slices
  • Ice

1. Finely chop or shred ginger in a food processor or with a hand grater. Boil water and add the ginger to it. Cover and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain.

2. Add honey. (More can be added to taste.)

3. Allow mixture to reach room temperature. Pour 1/2 cup in a glass. Add seltzer, a lemon slice, and ice. Stir and serve.

Any leftover drink must be refrigerated or the mixture will begin to ferment and you'll have ginger beer! Makes 4 servings.
