Ginger Beer

Home-made non-alcoholic ginger drinks are common throughout much of Africa, especially Western Afican. In Central Africa, West African shopkeepers often sell their homemade ginger drink, sometimes in recycled vegetable-oil bottles. These ginger drinks are much stronger than any ginger ale soda. They can be enjoyed chilled over ice, or diluted with cold water.
