 Refreshing, delicious and healthy!  I love homemade ginger beer it’s fresh, spicy and so much better than a canned soda any day.

Make your own Ginger Beer

Recipe:  Makes 4 – 8 oz Drinks

  • 4 Ginger Roots medium sized juiced (you will need a juicer for the ginger)
  • 4 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 6 oz Demerara Syrup (raw sugar simple syrup)
  • 32 oz Sparkling Water

Demerara Syrup

  • 1/2 Cup Raw Demerara Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Hot Filtered Water

Follow the simple syrup instructions but with the Demerara sugar it’s more course than a fine sugar so heating it up on the stovetop may be essential for dissolving the sugar into the water.

Instructions:

First you want to peel the skin off of the ginger, this will make it less bitter.  Then juice the ginger and limes in a juicer.  Prepare your juices and syrup.  I like to separate so I can customize each drink.  Some like more ginger or more sweet than others.

To make the ginger beer I use equal parts ginger, lime and syrup, add about 8 oz of sparkling water. (6 oz if you like it strong)
