Hi,

While I like the taste of ginger ale, I find the taste too strong, too concentrated.

Does anyone have any non-alcoholic ideas of what I can mix with ginger ale to make a yummy and refreshing drink?

PS. Please don't say "water." Diluted ginger ale isn't appealing to me.

Thanks!

Add lemonade or limeade. Or top with some orange juice.

It depends on the brand of ginger ale and your taste preference. Just about any fruit juice or fruit syrup (grenadine, grape, etc.) goes well with ginger ale. Some folks even put Angostura Bitters in their ginger ale. You can also muddle mint leaves, basil leaves, lemon peel, or orange peel in your ginger ale.

I'm from Montreal, so it's got to be Seagram's, of course.

Oh my gosh, grenadine! I just remembered my father ordering Shirley Temples for me when I was a kid. I felt so sophisticated. Funnier in hindsight, since -- as an adult -- I still don't drink, except maybe the odd glass (half of a glass) of Champagne.

Now I want to make a Shirley Temple. I'm on a mission to find grenadine.

Thanks for poking the old memory bank. Made me smile...

How about a ginger ale float with fruity ice cream.

I like ginger ale and ginger beer that hits you in the face with ginger and hopefully has carmelly notes from a dark sugar.

Well, YES! (yes, yes, yes, please!), that would be delicious. But, NO!, you're just trying to make me fat, lady, stop putting ideas like that in my head.

Lemonade.

Strong Unsweetened iced tea (trust me on this).

Cranberry juice.
