Healthy Ginger Ale Recipe

Save Money, Save Calories: Make Your Own Ginger Ale

If I am going to indulge in a soda, I usually choose some form of ginger ale. So you know I was excited when I found a recipe for making my own ginger brew at home. This recipe makes a tasty, mild, and quite refreshing drink, perfect for sipping in the afternoon. It's lower in sugar than anything you'll find in the stores, plus, ginger is a great antidote for motion sickness and promotes digestion as well.

My husband went to Jamaica and came back addicted to "Ginger Beer" (non alcoholic) I found a recipe similar to this with just a few differences.\u00a0Instead of lemon slices added later, I juiced them and put them in with the ginger, also I did a 2:1 lemon to lime ratio. It came out very similar to the Jamaican version.
