"A popular and refreshing drink from West Africa. If it's too spicy, dilute with water. All ingredients can be adjusted to taste. This drink is great for cutting the heaviness of fried foods. Enjoy!"

I made this for my dad's birthday since he loves ginger. The whole family loved it! My mom hates ginger, but even she wants me to make this recipe again. It is wonderful!
