Wow! I love this!!! It tastes like real gingerale to me. I used apple cider vinegar with the mother in it to be healthy. Just one thing, the real apple cider vinegar erodes tooth enamel but has wonderful health benefits otherwise. I will make this again.

I make ours a little differently and use kombucha instead of vinegar. This is what my husband almost always drinks, especially in the hot months when he's working outside for hours on end. It doesn't sieze your stomach up when you're really hot like other cold drinks can do.

I keep a gallon of this stuff in the 'fridge at ALL times. However... I dilute it. I make a double recipe in my gallon pitcher, which means I quadrouple the water. It's still a little sweet and definately tangy-tart, so it works pretty well as a palate cleanser. OH! and... Even at the "strength" at which I make it, it does a pretty good job at hiding the "edge" of whiskey.

I'm sorry but this was just gross! I tried to drink it, but it was way too vinegar-y. Even with extra sugar, it was undrinkable.

Well, I have to say this recipe has been in my Drinks cookbook for quite a while and I finally made it today. I quote Rita L when I say very interesting! I am one to try new and different recipes and this was good. The ginger wasnt overpowering and the vinegary taste hardly there. But I let it sit overnight and the next day it was alot more vinegary tasting. Still a different drink...thanks:)

This was very interesting! Sweet, and Tangy. I did enjoy the ginger. This seems like it would be a belly calming cleanse, But the sugar defeats that idea!

Almost like ginger beer but much quicker. And it certainly beats the commerical carbonated beverages that masquerade as ginger beer or ginger ale. The vinegar makes it quite tangy. This recipe is great if you are in those early weeks of pregnancy and feeling a tad queasy.

This is terrific! I just whipped it up and poured over some ice and I love the flavors. The vinegar adds a terrific tang and the ginger shines through without being overpowering. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup sucanat, but next time I will just sweeten to taste as I think this is a little too sweet for my personal taste. I don't like drinking soda, and this is a delicious alternative to ginger ale with more body and much healthier! I really enjoyed your 'comments' too. Wonderful recipe. I will make often.
