Homemade Ginger Ale…mmmmmm
February 14, 2010
There aren't many opportunities for treats on my restrictive diet. So when I came across this recipe for homemade ginger ale, and I realized that all the ingredients were not only things I'm allowed to eat, but I'm allowed to eat them on the same day... I had just had to make it of course! It sure is yummy...
- 2-3 tablespoons filtered water
- 1/3 cup peeled/chopped fresh ginger
- ¼-1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
- 3-5 table \spoons honey
- 2-3 tablespoons agave nectar
- one pinch sea salt
- Club soda or sparkling water
First take the peeled chopped ginger and mix with 2-3 tablespoons filtered water in a blender or magic bullet type mixer. Pulse a few times and then blend on high speed until really smooth.
Then take some cheese cloth and place it over a strainer. Pour mixture onto cheesecloth/strainer into a small pitcher. Once the liquid has passed through, pull the corners of the cheesecloth together and press out all the juice into the pitcher.
Add the lemon juice, honey, nectar (or stevia) and salt together. Stir until completely mixed.
Pour about 1/4 of the mixture into a class with ice and fill glass with club soda or sparkling water. Top with lemon slice.
YUM...I can actually have some soda!
