You will need plenty of fresh ginger root (about the equivalent of 6 inches), one lime, Celtic sea salt, whey, and evaporated cane sugar juice (Succanat and Rapadura are two kinds - this is basically a type of healthier, unrefined form of sugar). You will also need one glass quart jar or bottle with a screw-on lid and, a little later, some high-quality sparkling water and a second quart-size jar.
Combine the following in a quart-size jar:
- 1/3 cup fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped or grated
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 6 tbsp. Succanat (dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water)
- 1/4 tsp. Celtic sea salt
- 2 tbsp. whey
- enough water to fill the rest of the jar
*Note: there will be some cloudy sediment in the ginger ale; just allow it to settle to the bottom of the jar and pour carefully to get only the clear liquid. Or you can shake it up and let it be cloudy if you aren't too finicky. Enjoy!
