Ginger beer, a popular drink in Jamaica, is a healthier and non-alcoholic alternative to classic beer. This refreshing beverage is not only suitable for teetotalers and children but also offers numerous health benefits, including cholesterol reduction, stomach pain relief, and joint pain soothing. Here’s how to make your own natural ginger beer.
200 g ground ginger
450 ml mineral water
225 g sugar (or organic honey as a substitute)
115 ml sparkling water
A few drops of lemon juice
Lemon slices for garnish
Cook the Ginger:
Boil half a liter of water and add the ground ginger.
Let it cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
After cooking, let it rest for 20 minutes, then filter to separate the ginger from the water.
In a separate container, dissolve the sugar (or honey) in mineral water (the water you used to cook the ginger) to create a syrup.
Combine half a glass of ginger juice with two glasses of syrup and half a glass of mineral water.
Add a few drops of lemon juice to the mixture.
Chill and Serve:
Refrigerate until the ginger beer is cold.
Serve cold, similar to how you would enjoy regular beer, and garnish with lemon slices.
Ginger beer is a delightful and healthful drink, perfect for enjoying on its own or as part of a mixed beverage. It’s a great way to enjoy the therapeutic properties of ginger in a tasty and refreshing form.
