Homemade Ginger Beer

-F. Paul Picult

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons finely grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Boil water, remove from stove and add ginger and lime juice. Cover and let stand for one hour. Add sugar and stir. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, pushing down on ginger solids to release ginger extract. Bottle and refrigerate; will keep one week.
