Home-made refreshing ginger ale: version 1!


My husband Peter made this home-made refreshing ginger ale, version 1! He made this 2 days ago, when the weather was really hot in our garden. We needed something refreshing to cool down a bit & this is what he invented! Yummy, I say! All hail to Peter! πŸ˜‰ This home-made ginger ale is a tasty drinkable food gift and a great appetizer drink too! πŸ™‚

  1. What a yummie and refreshing drink Sophie! I’ve heard it’s quite warm on your side of the world at the moment so I hope this kept you cool. I recently tried to make an alcoholic ginger ale but haven’t quite perfected it yet, so I’ll just have to stick to your delicious version for the meantime!

    1. It was warm for 5 day in a row but it is much colder today. MMM,… I like the sound of that alcoholic version too,..;I can’t wait until you perefcted it, Aoife!

  2. This is soo weird!! Just YESTERDAY I was saying to my boyfriend that we should try making homemade gingerale together!! Well now I know where to find the recipe!! Too funny! It looks so refreshing!

  3. Oh this is exactly what I need today! Thanks so much lovely Sophie, now I just need to hsve you over to drink one with me! xo

    1. You need that 1/2 lime juice & maple syrup adds a bit of sweetness to it & dissolves really well. This ginger ale isn’t that sweet, just right!

  4. This is a great recipe, Sophie. I’m sure the ginger would be very good not only on a hot day but when you are sick with the flu – I’ve heard ginger is very good for coughs, colds etc xx

  5. Sophie, the ginger ale sounds so refreshing. The perfect time of year. And lemoncello! Love it. My son makes lemoncello as well. As usual, you do an unbelievable job and always a pleasant surprise.

    1. Yes, yes, yes! That’s great to hear that your son is also a limoncello maker & lover! πŸ˜‰
      Thank you, Jim!

  6. I’m not a fan of carbonated drinks and have only ever seen those fizzy ginger ales. This sounds like a great alternative, and so refreshing!

  7. Homemade ginger ale is the best, isn’t it? I made some last summer and just can’t go back to the store-bought variety. So yummy!
