An Ale For What Ails You

It seems like wherever I look university and college students are sipping hot soup and tea between bouts of studying for finals, while folks at the grocery store stock up on Vitamin C and Buckley’s cough medicine. As warmer weather crawls its way toward Corner Brook, cold-and-flu season hangs on for dear life.

So when I recently discovered this recipe for homemade ginger-ale, I knew it was just what the doctor ordered to get rid of winter’s remaining ails.

Simply chop one cup of fresh, peeled ginger. Add the ginger to a medium saucepan along with one cup of filtered water. Add 3/4-1 cup organic cane sugar.

Add 2 teaspoons of ground ginger for zip.

And simmer over medium-low heat for 1/2 an hour.

Strain and discard solids. Add two or more tablespoons of the ginger-syrup to a tall glass and top with sparkling water.

And with a couple of soda-crackers, a warm blanket, and your favorite flick, you’ll be ready to conquer the world, and Corner Brook’s sunny weather, in no time.
