Cardamom Infused Ginger Fizzy

27 Dec

This drink is irresistible. I love the combination of gingery spice with the earthy taste of cardamom. This is a perfect drink to serve to company as it provides a truly unexpected and intriguing taste. Plus, it is a great sweet soda replacement for people trying to stay away from sugar but still enjoy a sparkling festive drink. Not only is this a refreshing beverage to finish off heavy holiday meals, but both the cardamom and the ginger are traditional digestive aids.

1 tablespoon whole cardamom seeds
Large ginger root
Agave nectar
Sparkling water

Place 1 tablespoon whole cardamom seeds (minus the pods) and let them soak for 3 days in the sun in the window to infuse the cardamom.

Juice large ginger root until you have 1/2 cup ginger juice.

Strain the seeds and place the infused water, agave nectar, and ginger juice in the blender. This will produce a nice milky juice. Add sparkling water.
