With Valentine's Day coming up, ginger beer makes the perfect base for low-carb Moscow Mule cocktails! I couldn't find any sugar-free ginger beer without artificial sweeteners so I decided to make my own.
Mellissa of I Breathe I'm Hungry made a sugar-free ginger syrup that can also be used for making ginger beer. In my recipe I used Sukrin Gold which is my favourite brown sugar substitute, and used a blender that allowed me to extract a lot more flavour from the ginger root.
Note: Nutritious facts are estimated (I counted only 50% of the ginger root). One serving = 1/4 cup of the ginger beer concentrate + 1 1/2 cup sparkling water.
Serving size 1/4 cup/ 60 ml concentrate
