Ginger Beer

This is a drink that is very popular in the Caribbean during the Christmas season. It is very easy to make and also very refreshing.

1 lb fresh ginger (that is the ginger root)
~ 2 pints hot water
White Sugar to taste
Clean bottles to store.

Peel and grate the ginger. Put into a large bowl and pour the hot water over it. Cover and leave overnight. Next day strain into another bowl. I usually use a clean towel to do this as it works best to keep all the ginger pieces from getting into the strained liquid. Sweeten to taste. Pour into clean bottles and store in the fridge. To serve pour over ice. If the ginger beer is too strong you can add more water or some club soda
