Time: 5 minutes
- 4 teaspoons fresh ginger juice (see note)
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice plus lime wedge, for garnish
- 1 1/4 cups cold club soda.
Stir ginger juice, sugar and lime juice in 16-ounce glass until sugar is dissolved. Add ice and the club soda. Garnish with lime wedge.
Yield: One drink.
Note: Ginger juice can be made with a juice extractor or purchased from most health stores and juice bars. If making a large quantity of ginger ale, ginger syrup can be prepared ahead of time by dissolving 3/4 cup sugar in 1 cup ginger juice. Add lime juice and club soda to two tablespoons syrup just before serving.
