    How to make homemade ginger ale

    Making your own ginger ale is easy with Spärkel beverage system

    Although it is possible to make ginger ale using store bought sparkling water, we definitely recommend using the Spärkel beverage system to get the perfect flavor. Instead of simply adding sparkling water to ingredients, ginger and lime flavors infuse the water during the carbonation process. 

    *If you don’t have a Spärkel just yet, you can simply add sparkling water at step 3 of the sweetened ginger ale recipe and step 2 of the sugar-free ginger ale recipe.


    How to make sweetened ginger ale:

    1. Add 1″ grated ginger, fresh lime juice and a couple of slices of lime to your Spärkel bottle.
    2. Pour in 1-3 tbsp ginger simple syrup (Ginger Syrup recipe here).
    3. Top off with fridge-chilled water to 1″ below fill line
    4. Bring on the bubbly with your Spärkel on level 4
    5. Sip, Sip Hooray! Enjoy your glass of ginger ale

    Ginger Ale is an old fashioned favorite drink and a popular brand that many people enjoy. Ginger-ale has many benefits such as getting you hydrated , teeth whitening, instant energy and making your lemonade taste even better. In other words, it’s better for your body than store-bought sodas and other drinks on the market. 

    Making your own ginger ale will let you know exactly what is going into your drink. Feel free to add raw honey or lemon juice as opposed to high fructose corn syrup, which is a common additive in many prepackaged sodas. You can make a ginger ale that is sweet, creamy and refreshing at home.

    In-store sodas can quickly become expensive. A simple way to maximize the value and enjoyment of your ginger ale purchase, Spärkel lets you mix it up and make yourself a special ginger-ale drink when you need it!

    How to choose the right bubbly level? 


    For the perfect Spärkel ginger ale, we recommend using the L3 or L4 carbonation level. But of course, if you like a more subtle or intense fizzy sensation, you can try other settings!

    L1: 60 secs - A quick & light fizz

    L2: 90 mins - Moderate bubbles. The usual level for most sparkling waters

    L3: 2 mins - Bold carbonation with sharp bubbles

    L4: 2.5 mins - Stronger & even bubblier infusions

    Max Level: 4 mins - The extra fizz needed for denser juices & cocktails
