2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
1 1/2 cups hot (not boiling) water
3/4 cup honey
1. Combine all in a blender and process for 1 minute. Strain into a canning jar and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 10 days.
2. To Make Ginger Ale: Pour 1/4 cup of the ginger mixture (more or less to taste) into a glass.
3. Add sparkling water and ice cubes. Makes about 2 cups--enough for 8 servings of ginger ale.
