mmmmmm i do love ginger ale...i have not had a pepsi or coke in over 25 years...i know...weird right?!!....but i love my ginger ale....this is a good alternative!!
here was my inspiration:
here is what i used:
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 knob fresh ginger, peeled, diced, and smashed
1/4 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 TBSP lemongrass
5 cups water
simmered all for 15 mins...then strain...and add stevia to taste!!
i started with these...
peel and finely dice your fresh ginger
then i turned my knife blade flat and smashed....to help release the flavor
zested 1 lemon....and then juiced it too!!
simmered in 5 cups of water for 15 mins
strained my tea....ok so this is NOT a strainer...but hey whatever works right??!!!
fresh hot tea....see the tiny vanilla bean specks!!
half for hot tea....and half for cold ginger ale!! woot woot
