Ginger ale is a carbonated beverage and is classified as a soda or soft drink. This drink is golden in color and is flavored with the ginger root or other artificial flavors.
Ginger ale was first introduced in Canada and the United States in 1851 by Dr. Thomas Cantrell. This beverage is available in golden and dry versions.
Ginger ale has a low yeast content due to the fermentation process used to carbonate it. The soft drink is flavored with high-fructose corn syrup. Lemon and lime juices are also often used to provide a slight citrus flavor.
Ginger ale is often used as a remedy to treat upset stomach, sore throat, cough and motion sickness.
