Such a Gingery Day :)
Over Christmas, I had some ginger ale left after a party. It was going a little flat and I wanted to enhance the flavor a little so decided to add some ginger to it to give it a little more gingery, spicy, snappy flavor. I just added a teaspoon or so (I am not really sure how much) to a glass and added the ginger ale. After it sat a while, I poured it through a strainer and then drank it. Well, it worked and we actually liked it that way pretty well. So I decided to try it again. I bought a two liter of ginger ale and this time I decided to add the ginger right into the bottle of ginger ale and then strain it as I drank it. It seemed to be working fine, but after 30 seconds or so, I noticed that the ginger ale was starting to foam a little. I decided to put the lid back on. As soon as I did, not only was it foam, but it began spewing everywhere! I never did get the lid back on and maybe that was good because we could have had an explosion. I sort of let out a screech, overreacting like I often do, and hurried it into the sink before my kitchen was a total disaster. My husband said, get the video camera, and of course I could not think fast enough to know where it was. But we did manage to get a picture of the tail end of it. It was really much worse than this. Oh well, that was my excitement for the day.
