Ingredients

For the concentrate:

  • 1/4 cup ginger juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon or lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups + 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 lemon for juice to be added while making sugar syrup

For making a drink:

  • 3 tablespoons gingerade concentrate, or to taste
  • Crushed ice, as needed
  • Chilled water or club soda, as needed

Instructions

  1. Cut and squeeze the lemons or limes to extract 1/2 cup of juice. Strain the juice and add 1 tsp sugar. Stir and keep in the refrigerator.
  2. Peel and chop the ginger. Grind the ginger to a fine paste in a grinder. Do not use any water for grinding. Strain out the juice and keep in the refrigerator.
  3. In a pot, add 1 1/2 cups sugar, water, and the juice of 1 lemon. Keep it on medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves and the syrup comes to a boil. Remove from heat and let it cool down completely.
  4. Strain out the sugar juice in a large bowl. Add the ginger juice and lemon juice. Stir to mix well.
  5. Pour the gingerade concentrate into a glass bottle, close the cap, and store it in the refrigerator. This concentrate will keep well for up to one month.
  6. To make a glass of gingerade, add 3-4 tbsp of ice to a glass. Then pour in 3 tbsp or more of the gingerade concentrate. Fill the glass with chilled water or club soda, stir well, and serve.
