Gingerale Syrup

Make your own gingerale

Making your own drink syrup concentrates such as Lemonade, Limeade, or Soda Pop Concentrates such as this Ginger Syrup for gingerale, are easy to do. They  are basically a water/sugar syrup with added flavorings, and only take about 30 minutes to do.

They make a great little gift also. What I love about this Ginger Syrup is that it can make not only traditional Gingerale, but can be made into a Ginger "Tea" to help with nausea. Would make a great gift for someone suffering from morning sickness, or Chemo treatments, or even the stomach flu!

I used recycled chili sauce bottles from my last batch of meatballs, they make a perfect bottle for giving as a gift.  I found these great free printable labels too!

To make the syrup I tinkered around with a recipe from wikihow & tipjunkie

Ginger Syrup:


1 1/2 cups peeled and thinly sliced ginger root
1 1/2 cups White sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar or make your own (you can make it all white sugar if you prefer)

Peel and dice ginger root.
In Saucepan over med.-high heat stir sugars and water together. Quarter the lime and toss into the pan.
Heat to boiling stirring occassionally.

Once boiling, turn down to medium -low heat and stir in the ginger root pieces. Let simmer 30 minutes.

Let cool. Then pour through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth into container.

Label with the following instructions and store in refrigerator.

Pour 1-2 Tablespoons ginger syrup into serving glass. Stir in 8 oz. cold seltzer or club soda water. serve with ice and a lime wedge!
