ginger ale

Homemade Ginger Ale
from Imbibe

2 cups unpeeled, washed, fresh ginger, roughly chopped
2 cups sugar
6 cups water
8 cups club soda or sparkling water, chilled

Process ginger chunks in forrd processor or blender until finely chopped. Place in a large stock pot.
Add sugar and water and stir. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer of medium-low heat and cook for about an hour until a rich syrup is created.
Strain the syrup twice through cheese cloth or sieve into a large jar or pitcher. Set aside to cool.
Fill a glass with ice. Add 1/3 cup of ginger syrup and top it off with club soda or sparkling water. Add a squeeze of lime if you’d like. So good!
