Make Your Own Ginger Ale!
Ginger syrup is used to make your own homemade ginger ale. If you think you’ve tasted ginger ale before, you haven’t tried making your own. It tastes like ginger. I mean really like ginger. At first I was kind of thrown off by how much it tasted like ginger, but then I grew to love it, and now am totally addicted to it.
It can also be used in cocktails, teas or even drizzled over ice cream or desserts. I've used in salad dressings and in making sauces for roasted chicken.
I found The Artisan Soda Workshop: 75 Homemade Recipes from Fountain Classics to Rhubarb Basil, Sea Salt Lime, Cold-Brew Coffee and Much More and decided what to make first. I settled on the Ginger Syrup because I love ginger!

Ginger Syrup for Homemade Ginger Ale
- In a medium pot combine the water, ginger and syrup and over high heat, bring to a boil. Whisk in the ground ginger. Reduce the heat to medium or medium low and let simmer, until is is reduced by half, about 10 minutes. (Mine took longer).
- Take off the heat and strain out the ginger pieces either with a slotted spoon or through a strainer.
- Let the syrup cool and refrigerate covered for up to 5 days.
- To make ginger ale: Stir 3 tablespoons of the ginger syrup (or to taste), into 1 cup of seltzer.
- Makes 1 cup
