Everyday Meals Ginger Syrup for Homemade Ginger Ale October 08, 2018 / by Junko There is nothing better than the taste of homemade ginger ale. I like it spicy so I always make a ginger syrup with lots of spices 😉 It is also delicious stirred into tea/chai, hot wine or added to smoothies. Homemade ginger ale will be served for the guests who come to our class 😊 with this amount of ginger, I could make only two bottles of syrup… Mmm! Smells so good! My recipe uses ginger, beet sugar/honey, laurel leaves, cinnamon, clove, cardamom, red pepper, and lemon. I decanted the syrup in the bottles which originally contained Italian organic juice. Looks so pretty 😍 I never discard ginger pieces and let them sun-dried. Now it becames a tasty snack with medicinal benefits!
