Home Made Ginger Ale

I sent these home made ginger ale kits as Mother's Day presents this year, but it would be fun to do for yourself too!

What You Need:

1/4 cup honey
1 cup carbonated water
1 teaspoon fresh ginger root
(can replace with 1/2 tsp powdered ginger root)
1/4 tsp cinnamon bark
1 tsp peppermint leaf
1/4 tsp anise seed
1/4 tsp cardamom
1/2 tsp lemon peel
3 cups boiling water
1 Tea bag

 Mix the herbs.  Put in a tea bag (if you have trouble getting it all in the bag use a funnel). Pour hot water over and steep for several minutes.  Remove tea bag and stir in honey. Cool in refrigetator.  Just before serving add Carbonated water.


  1. Would this work to make a large quantity of the syrup and add to carbonated water for individual servings? My mom loves carbonated water and recently got a sodastream and this would be great if I could make her a batch of this for her to add to her water.
