Sugarless Homemade Ginger Ale

I have this weird thing with ginger ale. It’s my solution every time I don’t feel well: stomach ache – for sure ginger ale, head ache – probably ought to give ginger ale a go, your knee is swollen – ginger ale? to help the swelling? worth a shot?

I also thoroughly enjoy mixing it with whiskey – try it!!!  Except I really hate all of the sugar that comes with it so I decided to solve my own problem with this drink – the sugarless  homemade ginger ale.  PS-it’s insanely delicious, like as good as the stuff you spend $4.00 on at whole foods and you get way more out of it! You can also modify as necessary – make it as gingery as you like (just add more or less of the syrup to the soda).

So fix all your ailments and make this healthy ginger ale!
