While the Times article includes a recipe for ginger ale adapted from New-York based drinks master Sasha Petraske, those looking to expand their repertoire of homemade sodas might want to check out Storey's Homemade Root Beer, Soda & Pop, which includes 60 easy-to-follow recipes for traditional and modern soft drinks. Why stop at ginger ale when you can make Virgin Islands Ginger Beer, Mulled Ginger Apple Ale, Ginger Pop, Chinese Ginger Beer, or Ginger Lager? Also included are instructions for crafting delicious batches of root beer, birch beer, sarsaparilla, cherry and cream sodas, coffee whizzers, fruit smoothies — even dandelion champagne, an interesting way to convert a yard full of weeds into a delicious and satisfying drink this summer. Cheers!
