Meyer Lemon Ginger Beer

Just in time for Spring weather, a take on my traditional ginger beer recipe.  The delicious flavor of ginger infused with Meyer lemons - you are going to want to double this recipe as it vanishes quite fast.   Not only is this great tasting, but ginger is good for your digestive system.   Turn this into a cocktail using Domaine de Canton ginger liquor.   For the sparkling soda, I use either my SodaStream or my iSi Twist and Sparkle - we are just making still water fizzy here, not reinventing the wheel.  Here is the recipe!

Ginger Beer:
8 ounces of ginger, grated or sliced
8 cups water
2 cups white sugar
2 Meyer lemons
Cold Club Soda for mixing

Using a microplace box grater, zest and juice the lemons, then place into a pot.  Grate the ginger on the large grate into the pot - then add the sugar and water

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 with a 50/50 mix of ginger syrup and club soda - enjoy!
