Carbonated soft drink that is flavored primarily with ginger, lemon, and sugar. It is rarely produced as an alcoholic beverage. A simple version of this recipe can be made at home today in which grated fresh ginger, sugar, a small amount of baker's yeast, and (optionally) lemon juice is bottled in a 2 liter bottle. It is sealed at room temperature to fermet for a day or two before refrigerating.
