DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and scrape the skin off the ginger. Grate or blend the peeled ginger (grating brings out the flavor more, but to save time it can be blended).
  • Put ginger, lime juice, cloves, cinnamon stick and 3/4 cup of the sugar into a wide mouthed gallon glass or ceramic jar.
  • Add 10 cups boiling water to jar and stir until sugar dissolves.
  • Set ginger mixture aside to steep and cool to room temperature.
  • Cover jar tightly and refrigerate for 1 week.
  • Line a large strainer with a double layer of cheesecloth.
  • Strain ginger mixture through strainer into another wide mouthed gallon glass or ceramic jar, firmly pressing on solids with the back of a spoon to extract as much flavor as possible.
  • Throw away the solids.
  • Add the remaining sugar to ginger beer and stir until it dissolves.
  • Serve in glasses over crushed ice, garnished with mint sprigs.
