Have to agree with Zigo – the vanilla ruins this recipe. We also threw out a whole batch and started over, using another recipe with no vanilla or lemon extract. A little lemongrass boiled with the ginger, and a slice of fresh lime with the finished soda, made a much better ginger ale!

I’d love to make some Elderflower Cordial using Stevia as the hedgerows are full of the beautiful fragrant flowers. Is it possible and do you have a recipe?

Many thanks, Sue

Any resemblance between this and ginger ale is purely accidental. What’s with the vanilla???? If I had left out the vanilla, I would probably have a perfectly good ginger ale. As it is, I tossed the whole batch after going to a lot of trouble to make it!!!

Can I exchange the ginger powder for the fresh piece of ginger, and could I use a sweetner Truvia, which is made from stevia? If so, how much of each?
