Perfect for summer BBQ’s picnics or parties, this ginger fizz is a refreshing drink option for grown-ups or adults. All you need is a little sugar, ginger, lemon and soda water to make this easy beverage

Ingredients

  • 500g caster sugar
  • 350g root ginger, coarsely grated
  • Pared rind and juice of 2 lemons
  • Soda water or sparkling mineral water, to dilute

Method

  • Pour 500ml water into a pan and add the sugar. Place the pan over a medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the ginger and lemon rind to the pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and leave the mixture to cool. Add the lemon juice to the mixture.

  • Strain the syrup, pressing as much juice as possible out of the ginger and then discard the ginger.

  • Dilute the syrup to taste with soda water or sparkling mineral water. The syrup can be stored in a bottle in the fridge for up to 1 week.

If you like sweet drinks, then try using lemonade to dilute to tast rather than fizzy water
