Step 1Wash and cut the ginger root into medium chunks. Place it in a blender together with 2 1/2 cups of water. Blend for just about 10 seconds.

Step 2Pour the ginger mixture through a fine mesh sieve (or use cheesecloth) into a sauce pan. Discard the pulp. Juice 2 lemons and add the fresh lemon juice to the sauce pan. Heat the mixture over a medium-low heat.

Step 3Add the sweetener and stir until dissolved. Cook the mixture until reduced to about a half (1 1/2 cups). Then, take off the heat and let it cool down.

Step 4Once cool, pour 1/4 cup of the ginger beer concentrate in a glass and add 1 1/2 cups of sparkling water or more to taste.

Step 5Optionally, add a few ice cubes. Properly stored in the refrigerator, your homemade ginger beer can last for up to 2 weeks.
