    This recipe is wonderful! We love ginger and dont' think it is overly gingery. We keep a bottle of this concentrate in our refrigerator at all times. When preparing the actual drink, we follow the recipe but use Fresca instead of Sprite. The grapefruit tastes so goooood with the ginger/lime. And like another reviewer said - we sometimes add some rum or vodka to the drink. Another good use - We add a small squirt to our yogurt/pineapple/papaya smoothie in the mornings. Sometimes, I add a splash to my mango/pineapple relish over seared ahi. YUM!!!

    Yum! I love ginger and, like Engrossed, added more concentrate to water over ice. Thanks, I really enjoyed it and will be making more. I made 1/2 a recipe. Made for the Healthier Choices ABC game.

    Was looking for something to drink on a hot humid Friday night in Florida and found your recipe. The flavors were very good but just a little too much ginger for our taste. I will repeat the recipe but maybe try just adding a few tablespoons of ginger while blending. I keep my ginger in the freezer which makes it grate very nicely, no stringiness. Of course, I forgot to mention that we were using vodka instead of Sprite. That might have had something to do with it. Thanks for posting.

    Its getting hot out, and a refreshing drink like this is just what I needed. I cut the recipe in half since because I didnt buy much ginger, probally ended up with alittle less then I was suspose to but it still tasted fine. I rarely ever buy real ginger, but this was so worth it. I added the concentrate to a glass half filled with crushed ice, half filled with sprite and it was devine. Id love to try it with mint also
