Recipe of Ginger Beer
DescriptionGinger beer is a traditional and tasty refreshment drink that is produced only in Corfu. It was first introduced to the islands during the British rule (18th century) and it is made till today. It is mostly consumed in summer as it is very refreshing.
Ingredients- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 full spoons of powdered ginger
- juice from one lemon
- ¼ spoon of dried yeast
- tepid water
PreparationIn a bottle, put the sugar and yeast. Shake the bottle well to mix the ingredients. Make sure the bottle is plastic because this mixture is eruptive and a glass bottle may break. Then blend ginger with the lemon juice and throw it into the bottle. Shake again until the sugar melts. Add tepid water until the bottle until it is 3/4 full. Close the bottle very well and leave it in a warm place (e.g sun, radiator) for 48 hours until the fermentation is completed. When you press the plastic bottle and there is resistance, then the drink is ready. Put it in another (glass) bottle and leave it in the fridge for about half an hour. Drink it chilly and consume it within a month.
