Fresh Ginger Beer Concentrate

8

Oh ginger! This recipe keeps in the fridge for up to three weeks, but I guarantee that it will be gone long before that! The first time I had ginger beer we were visiting family in Florida and and it was super potent but I really enjoyed it! What I love about this concentrate is that you can make your drink as gingery as you like!

Just pour about one ounce of your concentrate over ice with a fresh squeeze of lime and fill the rest of your glass with sparkling water and viola! If you prefer it a little spicier just add more ginger concentrate!

Also if you add a little spiced rum, its so delish!! But truth be told I just really enjoy it sans alcohol!

Directions

Step 1. Peel & Dice your ginger & throw it into your vitamix along with your filtered water;

Step 2. Peel your limes and add them to the Vitamix, blend until the ginger has been completely pulverized.

Step 3. Using a mesh strainer strain the mixture and reserve the juice. I always save the pulp and use it to make tea.

Step 3. Add your Maple syrup or honey to the juice mixture and mix well.  I use a 1/4 cup of maple syrup but if you’d like it sweeter add up to 1/2 a cup. Pour your mixture into a reusable glass bottle and store in the fridge for up to three weeks.

To make your ginger beer- Just add 1 ounce to 2 ounces of concentrate (depending on how strong you like it) over ice with a dash of lime and fill the rest of your glass with sparkling water or club soda.
