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.
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)
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.
