Serves: 1

8cm Stick of Ginger

1tbsp Unrefined Sugar

2tbsp Spring Water

1 Punnet of Strawberries

3 Sticks of Rhubarb

Sugar (to taste)

2ltr Water

This recipe relies on a ferment of ginger and sugar water, called ‘ginger bug’, which is then added to whatever flavourings you choose - it can even be used on its own (with water and a little sugar) to make homemade ginger beer. The whole process will take around 10 - 12 days
