If you love ginger ale, you have to try this recipe at home. It’s ginger ale without the artificial taste. In fact. Ginger is a delicious herb that’s been around for hundreds of year and used in many cultures for its health-boosting properties. Some of the ailments associated with ginger include soothing digestive issues, alleviating nausea, and stimulating the circulatory system.

We invite you to give it a try, and customize it as you see fit.

1/2 quart of water
1/4 tsp citric acid
1/3 cup fresh grated ginger root
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups organic sugar

Simmer all ingredients for 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from heat, strain out the pulp, and blend in sugar. Top off with cold water to make 1/2 quart of concentrated syrup.

Store in Refrigerator.

When you’re ready to make a drink, dilute the syrup at approximately 1 part syrup to 4 parts water, then carbonate.
