How to Make Homemade Ginger Lemon Soda

by Joe Moynihan

Supplies

  • ¾ Teaspoons Powdered Ginger
  • ½ Tablespoons Lemon Juice or
  • 1 True Lemon packet
  • 2 Tablespoons Agave Nectar
  • Seltzer Water
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Grab yourself a mug. This one takes about a cup and a half of liquid. Keep in mind that this recipe is designed for this amount. Adjust according and to your taste.

    Step 2

    Grab your ginger powder. I like this brand because it's way cheaper in price but has the same quality product.

    Step 3

    Add 3/4 Teaspoon of the Ginger to the glass.

    Step 4

    I like True Lemon. It's basically dehydrated lemon juice and keeps for years while juice doesn't. Use what you like. One packet or 1/2 Tablespoon of fresh or bottled juice.

    Step 5

    Add that to the glass.

    Step 6

    I prefer Agave Nectar to Sugar for several reasons. Use what you like as a sweetener but this has a lighter sweet flavor and is processed by the body more easily.

    Step 7

    For my taste, I've figured out that this is how much I like. It's about 2 Tablespoons. Add it to the glass.

    Step 8

    Use a butter knife or spoon to mix up the ingredients. It should look roughly like this.

    Step 9

    Time for the carbonated water. Add it to your glass about half way. Tilt the glass and pour the water down the side to reduce bubbling over. Stir & slowly fill up the glass in stages.

    Step 10

    Ginger has many health benefits, ranging from sinus and headache relief to calming a nauseous stomach to being a natural painkiller, and cancer prevention. Enjoy!
