Ginger Beer (Ginger Ale)
8 ounces of ginger, grated or sliced
8 cups water
2 cups light brown sugar
Cold Club Soda
Using a vegetable peeler, peel the zest off of the lime and place into a pot. Juice lime and place into the pot along with the peel. Regarding the ginger, you can either grate it using a microplace grater OR you can do a medium slice of it and put it in the pot, you do not have to peel the ginger.
Put remaining ingredients into the pot, bring to simmer and turn off heat. Let sit for 30 minutes, then strain. Put into refrigerator to chill. Fill a glass with ice, fill up halfway with ginger mixture and the other half with club soda. Stir to combine and enjoy! Alternatively you can pour mixed beer syrup and club soda (50/50 mix) into a bottle with stopper, chill and serve chilled.
