Peach Ginger Ale

Again with the peaches, I know. So many. So many.

My all time favorite ginger ale is Boylan’s.  It’s the epitome of a perfect ginger ale. Not too spicy, not too sweet.  I’ll actually spend the $4.99 to drink this 4-pack, as a family, on occasion.  But heck, if you can make ginger ale, that’s even better.  Plus, I can alter how much sugar goes into it.

INGREDIENTS:

2 cup ginger, peeled and cut into 1 inch rounds

2 cup water

1 cup of sugar (I do prefer 1/2 cup, but that is a less sweet version)

4 peaches, peeled and sliced

one 2-liter of sparkling water (refrigerate beforehand)

DIRECTIONS:

Place ginger, water, sugar, and peaches in a saucepan.  Whisk.

Bring to boil, then simmer for 15 minutes, allowing the flavors to “marinate”; producing a syrup. Strain the syrup into a bowl and allow to cool.  In a large pitcher, place the  refrigerated sparkling water, and the cooled ginger-peach marinade along with some ice cubes. Enjoy! So simple and so much cheaper.

  1. Wait a second. This is going to sound extremely foolish, but I never really realized you (as in I) could actually make ginger ale. Like it makes sense, because it’s like any other soda where you make a syrup, but WOW this BLEW MY MIND.
    (it being 3:40am is totally not contributing to that)
    Not only did this blow my mind but OH MY GOD I NEED TO DRINK THIS.

    this seems like it’s 100x better than iced tea, since I don’t want to really wait for it to cool down much. Ahhh. I gotta get rid of the peaches I have too!
