SeagramsThere are just as many nasties in regular ginger ale as there are in coke! And it doesn’t even contain any real ginger.

A step up from her ginger ale is this: make your own ginger beer plant to provide a continuous supply of healthy ginger beer! It’s also fermented, so it contains lots of healthy probiotics. Here’s my recipe for homemade ginger beer with a ginger beer plant.

Do you drink ginger beer? Would you try making your own?
