How To Make Immune-Boosting Ginger Ale While Working From Home
Ginger Ale is an immune-boosting drink that can help you stay active while working from home. It is necessary that you stay healthy by feeding on healthy meals and drinks to enhance your productivity.
Ginger is filled with immune-boosting benefits. First off, ginger is antibacterial so it helps support the immune system and it can help to prevent nausea and soothe an upset stomach.
Though you can look at the shelves in any supermarket and find various brands of ginger ale, making your own gives an entirely different taste. You can make a 2-litre bottle of fresh ginger ale straight from the ginger as long as you have the right ingredients.
Below are simple steps on how to make homemade Ginger Ale
- 1 cup (225 g) sugar.
- 2 tablespoons (30 g) freshly grated ginger root.
- 1/4 teaspoon (1.6 g) fresh granular baker’s yeast.
- Cold, pure water
- Add 1 cup of sugar to a bottle through a dry funnel. Leave the funnel in place until all the steps are complete and you are ready to cap the bottle.
- Measure out 1/4 teaspoon of fresh granular active baker’s yeast.
- Grate the ginger root on a fine cutting grater to produce 2 tablespoons of the grated root. Use the side of the grater with the finest teeth.

- Place the grated ginger in a measuring cup.
- Juice a whole lemon. Lemon is important to keep the pH level low and ward off unwanted microorganisms. If you don’t like lemon, try grapefruit juice instead.
- Add the juice of a whole lemon to the grated ginger.
- Stir the lemon juice and grated ginger to form a slurry, then add it to the bottle.
- Cap and shake the bottle. This helps activate the yeast and gets the carbonation process going.
- Reopen and fill the bottle to the neck with fresh, cool, clean water. Leave about an inch of head-space, then securely screw the cap down to seal. The head-space is necessary to leave room for gasses that will be produced during fermentation. Invert the bottle repeatedly to thoroughly dissolve sugar.
- Check the bottom of the bottle because the sugar tends to stick in little pockets there. The ginger root will not dissolve, of course.
- Test to see if carbonation is complete by squeezing the bottle forcefully with your thumb. The fermentation produces carbon dioxide (like in sodas) that will inflate the bottle and make it difficult to squeeze.
- Once the bottle feels hard to a forceful squeeze, usually after only 24-48 hours, place in the refrigerator. Refrigerate at least overnight to thoroughly chill before opening. Crack the lid of the bottle just a little to release the pressure slowly, and your refreshing Ginger ale is ready to taste.
This is not time to spend your money on things you can make yourself. Make your Ginger Ale in the comfort of your home and your immune system will thank you for it.
