a sweet little something..

homemade ginger ale.
i admit, i am an avid reader of food blogs. i must follow 20 of them on bloglovin'.. anyways, one of the foodie blogs i follow from scratch had posted this easy peasy ginger ale recipe that i immediately fell in love with and had to share. enjoy.

-1/3 cup fresh ginger root

-1/2 cup sugar

-1 cup water

-club soda

-lemon to serve with

In a small saucepan combine water, sugar and ginger (peeled and grated). Bring to a low boil and then turn down the heat and allow to simmer for 8-10 minutes. Strain ginger syrup (getting all those little ginger pieces out) into a clean glass jar and allow to cool (or refrigerate over night). Mix together 2 parts club soda (or other carbonated water) to 1 part ginger syrup, add a squirt of lemon juice and enjoy!
