Natural Ginger Ale

Cool yourself during the hot summer weather, or any time, with refreshing and tasty homemade ginger ale. This homemade ginger ale contains no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors like store-bought brands. You can play around with the ingredients to make it more citrus-y or more ginger-y, whatever floats your boat! For someone who doesn’t like ginger all that much, this ginger ale might be just about perfect.

You begin by making a ginger syrup, which can be stored in the refrigerator for a few weeks. Just add the syrup to chilled sparkling water or club soda when you’re thirsting for fresh ginger ale. It’s easy pleasy, lemon squeezy!


1½ organic lemons
1 cup finely chopped fresh ginger (peel before chopping)
1¼ cups organic cane sugar (or for an even healthier version, try coconut sugar)
2½ cups filtered water
natural, unflavored seltzer water or club soda

(As always, The Best Years in Life recommends choosing organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables before cutting or adding to the recipe.)



Make ginger syrup

Juice lemons, reserving one thick slice from the middle. Add lemon juice, lemon slice, chopped ginger, sugar, and water to a pot. Stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, then decrease heat to a simmer. Simmer gently for 15 minutes. Using a strainer or cheesecloth to catch solids, pour liquid mixture into a large glass measuring cup. (Compost solids or save ginger for other uses.) Make note of the amount of liquid you have. Return liquid to pot and continue simmering for 20-25 minutes, or until liquid has been reduced by half. Allow syrup to cool and transfer to a glass jar with a lid. Refrigerate until ready to mix drinks.

Make soda

Add about 2 tablespoons of syrup (to taste) to 1 cup of seltzer water or club soda and stir gently. Add ice, if desired, and enjoy immediately!

Notes from the kitchen

Don’t hesitate to play around with the ingredients a little to make a ginger ale that suits your tastebuds. Here are some suggestions:

Ginger can give a spicy kick to things, so if you’re not a fan of extremely ginger-y things you can try using less fresh ginger (or just use less syrup when making your glass of soda).

Add a little pure vanilla extract to the finished syrup to enhance the aromatic character of your soda.

Add more lemon juice if you prefer more citrus and less ginger flavor.
