An alternative to the traditional Ginger beer, I sought to find a homemade recipe as a substitute to the new introduction of the sugar tax and with it the new flavoured ginger beer with sweeteners that left a bitter aftertaste.
I used my ginger syrup as a base, the recipe which is here
Prep time: 5 minutes Serves: 4 glasses
300 ml ginger syrup
700 ml sparkling water
juice of 1 lemon or lime
1 lemon sliced
- Fill the jug with the the ginger syrup and add a generous squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice.
- top with sparkling water or lemonade and fresh slices of lemons, stir gently.
- Fill the glasses with ice then pour over and serve.
