    Sharon123's Note:

    I adapted the recipe from Bon Appetit (May 2006) and changed it up to add lemon and pineapple juice. I love it! The original recipe did not call for the lemon and pineapple juices, so you may want to try it that way first, but I highly recommend you try them! Oh, at first the drink was quite hot and spicy, but after sitting a short time in the fridge, it was just right! For a demonstration on how to make this recipe, go here:

      LOVED it! I don't think I've ever had ginger beer before (can't remember), DH has and he said this tastes MUCH MUCH BETTER than the store bought stuff! I had to cut the recipe in half since the local shop didn't have much ginger!!! I added in the lemon juice but didn't bother with the pineapple juice and I mixed it with club soda. Very refreshing! Thank you, Sharon123, for sharing this wonderful recipe. I definitely will be making this again!

      I've never had ginger beer before and what a surprise. I first tasted it plain and I really liked it. Then added the lemon, pineapple juice and club soda and love it even more. It's spicy enough to make your throat and lips tingle. I think it would be soothing for an upset stomach as well. Thank you for the introduction to something new Sharon!
