Agave Gingerale

Agave Gingerale
Yield: 4 drinks Prep 10 mins Start to Finish 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces (about 3 inches) fresh ginger root, peeled
  • 8 teaspoons agave syrup or to taste
  • 4 fresh mint leaves, for serving
  • 1 quart seltzer

Make It

1. Use an electric juicer to juice the ginger or puree it finely in the small bowl of a food processor along with 2 tablespoons water (alternatively, finely grate the ginger into a bowl and mix it with the water). Place the ginger puree in a piece of cheesecloth and squeeze out the juice into a small bowl (you'll have 1/4 cup).

2. For each drink, combine 2 to 3 teaspoons ginger juice and 1 to 2 teaspoons agave syrup to taste. Twist a mint sprig to release its fragrance and add it to the glass. Top with 8 ounces of seltzer and serve on ice.
