Ginger Ale is not a typical Asian recipe. It´s a refreshing lemonade that has it´s roots back in 1850 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. We love the taste of ginger and when you bring the fresh taste of lemon and ginger together in a carbonated soft drink you´ll have a perfect refreshing drink.The champagne dried yeast (For example: Red Star) is mostly used for making wine. You will find it on the internet or in special stores for vintners.

Bring water to a boil, remove from heat.
Stir in sugar, salt and ginger.
Let the mixture cool and add lime juice.
Pour liquid in a plastic bottle (for 2 Liters) and fill with more water.
Leave 3 cm space to the bottleneck.
Now add yeast, close bottle with a lid and shake until dissolved.
Set bottle aside for 12-48 hours on room temperature.
You have to wait until the liquid is carbonated. Check the bottle.
When it feels hard the Ginger Ale is ready to drink.
Use a sieve to separate ginger from liquid when you fill the Ginger Ale in bottle.
It stays fresh in the fridge for 2 weeks.
