Ginger Ale: Pure English

Even though the word Gin appears in the word Ginger Ale, Ginger Ale has nothing to do with Gin. Ginger Ale is an corbonated drink to which ginger extract and a colouring agent have been added. Ginger Ale is very popular in the UK, but hardly used outside of their borders. The bitter and spicy taste of the Ginger Ale, which goes very well with Gin, is often preffered over the more dull soda water.
