If you’re a fan of a strong ginger taste, you have to try making your own at home! It’s super easy and way better for you than those sugary store-bought sodas. The combination of fresh ginger and zesty lemon makes for a delicious and refreshing drink that’s perfect for hot summer days (or any day, really). Plus, ginger and lemon both have awesome health benefits – like improving digestion and giving your immune system a boost. This recipe uses all natural ingredients, so you can enjoy all the good stuff that ginger and lemon have to offer without any weird additives. My family is totally obsessed with this homemade ginger ale – once you try it, you will be too!

Most ginger ales are made with boiled ginger and sugar, but we like to keep things raw and real with this recipe. It lets the strong ginger taste shine through and pairs perfectly with the refreshing lemon flavor. And the best part? It’s a hit with the whole family! I love being able to give my kids something they enjoy that’s also good for them. So why not give it a go? Trust me, your taste buds (and your body) will thank you!

If you find the ginger taste in the homemade ginger ale to be too strong for your liking, don’t worry! You can easily adjust the recipe to your taste. Simply add more sparkling water to dilute the ginger flavor, and a little more stevia or maple syrup to balance the sweetness. Don’t be afraid to experiment and find the perfect balance for you.
