Homemade Ginger Ale

I made this recipe up one night because I had a ton of ginger that I didn't know what to do with... So, this is my version of ginger ale, I hope you can all enjoy it as much as my parents and I have.

Makes 1 1/2 cups of syrup

3 cups sugar
3 cups water
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sliced ginger
1 2-liter bottle club soda

In a medium saucepan over high heat, add the sugar and water and bring to a soft boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and add the sliced ginger and lemon juice and simmer covered for 30 minutes, or until the syrup has reduced down in half.

Allow syrup to cool and add 1 - 2 tablespoons of syrup, depending on how flavourful you like it, to a tall glass with ice and add club soda. Enjoy!

*NOTE: I have boughten some squeeze bottles from a local kitchen store for $0.95 that work great for storing and squirting the syrup out whenever you want a drink. In case you're not sure what I mean, here is a link for you so you know what kind of bottle to get.
