How to make it

  • Boil 6 cups of water.
  • While the water is boiling, wash ginger and cut up into small pieces leaving the skin on it. Puree the ginger.
  • Put the ginger in a safe container (can be used with boiled water, I use a large glass container with a rubber seal) and add the 6 cups of boiling water.
  • Add the zest and juice of 1 Lime
  • Add 2 T of cream of tartar.
  • Mix and cover/close the container.
  • When the mixture has cooled prepare a yeast mixture. Yeast mixture: Add 1 tsp of dry yeast to 1/3 cup of warm water and mix until well blended. Add the yeast mixture to your ginger mixture.
  • Stir the ginger then cover/close the container and let sit for 6 hours
  • After 6 hours dissolve 1 to 1.5 cups of sugar into a cup of warm water. Stir until dissolved.
  • Add the sugar mixture to the ginger and stir.
  • Refrigerate for up to 3 days.
  • I usually serve this by straining individual servings into a glass. No worries if you don't mind the ginger and lime bits in your beverage.
