Healthy Refreshing Ginger-Ade - Enjoy Hot or Cold

Here is a tasty and healthy drink that is super easy to make and which you can enjoy cold during the warm summer months and hot during the colder months. Among it's healthy ingredients are fresh ginger, star anise, cinnamon and lemon - and you can make it without unhealthy refined sugar. The tasty star anise is the plant which the Tamiflu flu medication was based on (but this is the real deal and not a pharmaceutical synthetic). Hot or cold, the drink can also be served as a non-alcoholic "mocktail" to curb consumption of alcohol, which has been linked to head, neck and liver cancers, and believe it may be a culprit in higher risk for colon, rectal and breast cancers.


1/3 cup (3 oz.) thinly sliced, fresh ginger
1 whole star anise
3-in. piece stick cinnamon
1½ cups cold water
Maple syrup, raw honey or coconut sugar*
1 lemon, cut lengthwise into 4 wedges

To serve hot:

3 cups hot water

To serve cold:

3 cups cold seltzer or club soda

* If using coconut sugar, combine 3/4 cup with 3/4 cup cold water in a small saucepan. Set the pot over medium-high heat and cook until the sugar dissolves, 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature, then use the syrup or refrigerate, tightly covered. This simple syrup keeps indefinitely.

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)



1. Place ginger, star anise, cinnamon and water in small saucepan. Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Cover, and set aside to steep for 30 minutes. Strain hot ginger concentrate into heatproof measuring cup.

2. To serve hot, divide hot concentrate among 4 mugs. Add 3/4 cup hot water to each, and sweeten to taste. Add lemon wedge to squeeze into hot gingerade.

3. To serve cold, cool ginger concentrate to room temperature. Divide among 4 tall glasses. Add 6 ice cubes to each glass, then pour in 3/4 cup club soda. Sweeten cold gingerade to taste, add lemon wedge to each glass, and serve.

5. Unused concentrate will keep, tightly covered in refrigerator, for 3 days.

Makes 4 servings.
