This ginger beer recipe makes the most refreshing, cool drink for a hot day. It can be stored in the fridge for quite a long time. However, if the recipe is really too much for your need, it is rather easy to just halve the ingredients – yet not the time. Presented in a nicely decorated bottle, it also makes a very handy, cheap yet special gift.
Brewed ginger beer originated in Yorkshire, England in the mid 18th century. It became popular throughout Britain, Ireland, Canada, the United States, and South Africa.
