Ginger Beer!

Disclaimer: I haven't actually tried this yet, but the idea of making ginger beer by leaving some water and ginger in the sun for a day sounded too good to pass up. I'll be making it for sure once finals are over :)

Swiped from Doctorandmama: http://open.salon.com/blog/doctorandmama

1 pound fresh ginger
1 lime
4 pints water
granulated white sugar, 1 to 2 pounds (to taste)
4 pints sparkling water

1. peel and grate the ginger root
2. juice the lime, and retain the peel
3. place the above ingredients into a large jar with the water
4. place the jar in the sun for an entire day
5. strain out solids, and sweeten the liquid to taste
6. allow to settle in the refrigerator for 2 days
7. add sparkling water to taste or desired fizziness
