ginger ale update

me
Nothing particularly new and exciting today (had pb&j for lunch... I could post a recipe, if you're interested lol) but I realized I never posted results of ginger ale!!!

It turned out.... alright. It was fizzy and sweet, so I'll consider it a success... It was really gingery though... Which wasn't bad, but just different. Also, if you make it, do strain it out... otherwise you have all kinds of bits of ginger and rubbish in your mouth with each drink, and it's really rather unpleasant...

I've read other recipes that are essentially the same, but you just change the flavoring; i.e. instead of ginger sub vanilla extract (for cream soda) or root beer extract (gotta find me some of that; i didn't know such a thing existed!!!)

I'm mainly just excited that I could carbonate something.

That sounds awesome! Less ginger, perhaps?
