Ginger ale! Every nauseated human's good friend.
It's also a delightful refreshment but, I admit, I only reach for the ginger ale when feeling under the weather.
But then, I decided to make it myself and realized this truly is a delightful refreshment!
Let me first just say that I love ginger. I think it's beautiful. I think it's amazingly potent. I just love it.
1/2 cup diced ginger
2 cups water
1/2 cup simple syrup (sugar and syrup combined)
Peel and slice 1 large piece of ginger (about 1/2 cup) and combine in saucepan with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let steep for 20 minutes. To make simple syrup, heat 1 cup water in sauce pan and dissolve 1 cup sugar in it.
Pour the ginger liquid into a pitcher through a strainer. Compost ginger pieces.
Add 1/2 cup simple syrup to pitcher. Squeeze the juice out of the lemon and lime into the pitcher as well.
Add in club soda to taste (we make our own bubbly using our Soda Stream - highly recommend it!). I ended up adding in 4 cups of soda water to get the right flavor.
