Easy Peasy Ginger Beer

Ingredients
  • 5 ounces (140 grams) fresh ginger
  • 4 tablespoons muscovado sugar
  • 2 to 3 lemons
  • 1 3/4 pints (1 liter) soda water or sparkling mineral water
  • Sprigs of fresh mint
Directions
  • Grate the ginger on a coarse grater; you can leave the skin on if you like. Put the ginger with its pulpy juice in to a bowl and sprinkle in your muscovado sugar.

  • Remove the rind from 2 of your lemons with a vegetable peeler, add to the bowl, and slightly bash and squash with something heavy like a rolling pin or a pestle. Just do this for 10 seconds, to mix up the flavours.

  • Squeeze the juice from all 3 lemons and add most of it to the bowl. Pour in the fizzy water.

  • Allow to sit for 10 minutes and then taste. You may feel that the lemons are slightly too sour, therefore add a little more sugar; if it's slightly too sweet, add a little more lemon juice.

  • Pass the ginger beer through a coarse sieve in to a large jug and add lots of ice and some sprigs of mint.
