better than ginger ale, this is wonderful for stomach cramps, indigestion, nausea and is also an energy stimulant. syrup keeps refrigerated for 6 months


  1. for syrup combine water and ginger in saucepan, simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. cool slightly and strain.
  3. add maple syrup, stir to mix.
  4. stir 2 tbsp of syrup into carbonated water, add lemon juice and peel.

This is good! I did add just a little more than 2 tbls. of the syrup to make a drink. Refreshing! Thanks for posting this!

I enjoyed this after dinner. A nice way to relax and unwind! I use Honey in place of the syrup and only 2 tablespoons.

this is sooooo great... relieved my sore throat which I´ve been having for more than a week (medicines didnt work). Thank you so much Chia.... We decided to add more lemon juice so it will be more effective for my sore throat and cough. Wonderful, wonderful results.. After a week of medications, it was Chia´s recipe that made me really well. I didnt cough as much and I was able to get a good night´s sleep because throat wasnt aching anymore and I didnt have to take those throat lozenges.
