Quick GingerĀ Beer

April 6, 2015


Author Notes: If you think this is anything like wimpy ginger ale, think again. With a healthy dose of ginger, Quick Ginger Beer packs quite a bite.

Cooking tip: For a less intense drink, cut back on the amount of syrup, or use a lemon-lime soft drink in place of the sparkling water. This recipe was written by the Healthline Editorial Team: http://www.healthline.com/health-recipes/quick-ginger-beer

Hmmm. This looks like a great base for a dark & stormy.
