From the childhood summers at my grandparents’ house in Florida, I remember climbing their orange tree, reading in the living room, and rifling through the collection of sodas they kept in a cupboard in the sunroom. Not only were they not cold, but the vast majority of them were ginger ale–with the occasional cream soda or root beer I would quickly snatch up for myself. Only to come back the next day and have to settle for a gross, spicy ginger ale. Strange how our tastebuds change over time. I was a fairly picky eater as a kid, with a roaring sweet tooth. I wouldn’t even eat strawberries unless they were covered in sugar (or chocolate). Now they’re one of my favorite sweets and ginger ale is a staple in my fridge during these hot summer months. I just love the complexity of flavor the ginger, honey, and mint provide together. It’s not only refreshing, but very soothing to the stomach.
