I have been introduced to Blenheim's ginger ale and I love the burn, especially with a good bourbon mixed in. Bad part is it is really hard to get here, and almost impossible off of the East coast. So I went in search of a recipe to match and this turned out damn good.
For a 2L batch
1 lime, zested and juiced
1/2C light corn syrup
1/2C crushed pineapple and juice (use fresh if you can)
1 large piece of fresh ginger (about 12oz)
Fill up the 2L bottle with water and dump into a pot. Add lime zest and juice, cinnamon and bring to a simmer.
Add honey, turbinado, corn syrup and simmer for 20 minutes.
Put ginger and pineapple in food processor and run for 10-15 seconds until it is finely chopped.
Turn off heat and add ginger/pineapple, let steep covered on stove until cooled down (I let mine go about an hour)
Strain and put in fridge until cool.
Carbonate and enjoy. This has a real good bite to it - at least so far, I made it this morning and am about to make myself a drink
