Homemade Ginger Ale...

photo via:the kitchen

Here's the recipe for one of my favorite summertime drinks.  This version is so much lighter and  more refreshing than what you can buy.

Homemade Ginger Ale

3 tablespoons ginger infused simple syrup
8 oz club soda
1 teaspoon lemon juice
mint sprig optional

Mix the first three  ingredients and pour over ice in your favorite mug.  Garnish with a mint sprig and enjoy!!!

Simple Syrup

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup pealed and cubed ginger root

bring water and ginger root to a gentle boil.  Once water begins to boil, slowly add sugar and stir until completely dissolved.  Allow to marinate in your frig for a day or two before using.
