Ginger Beer


Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Sue Bee® Honey
  • 4 lemons
  • 1 orange
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped fresh ginger
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups orange juice
  • 4 cups sparkling water

Directions

  • Grate 2 tablespoons each of lemon and orange zest.
  • Squeeze 1/3 cup lemon juice from 3 of the lemons. Set aside.
  • In a food processor, pulse the Sue Bee® honey, ginger and sugar until just combined. Add the orange and lemon juices and process.
  • Transfer to a large lidded container. Add the orange and lemon zests and 2 cups of boiling water and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 24 hours and up to 5 days.
  • To serve, strain the ginger-beer base into a pitcher. Thinly slice the remaining lemon and orange to form circles. Add the slices and mineral water to the pitcher and stir. Serve over ice.
