Ginger beer basically is a kind of carbonated alcoholic drink or soft drink, flavoured mainly with ginger, lemon and sugar. It is easily available in wine shops, or can be purchased from online web-sites like www.jamaicantastebuds.com. , www.drinkshop.com. , etc.
It was first created in England during the 1700s, and became quite popular during 1900s. The original recipe mainly had ginger, sugar and water to which a gelatinous material which was known as "ginger beer plant" was mixed. Ginger beer normally has a lot of fizz in it due to the carbon dioxide content in it. Ginger beer can be combined with normal beer to create a type of shandy.
The beverage manufactured industrially now days is frequently not brewed. Such ta ype of ginger beer is often carbonated with compressed carbon dioxide, and zero alcoholic content.
