Today I was cleaning out the refrigerator and found some almost fermenting Ginger. So I was thinking maybe I could make some Ginger Ale. I had Soda water, No lemons but I did have some frozen Lemonade.

Once it was chilled down I added some to a glass, and added some soda water.

Later I looked for a recipe And found a few

What a great idea, I doubt I ever would have thought to do this. I keep a knob of ginger in the freezer and just chop off whatever I need, so it doesn't spoil here.
