Ginger Bug Drink Image
GINGER BUG
A ginger bug is the start of many natural fermented beverages. The mixture of sugar, ginger, and water captures wild yeasts and beneficial bacteria, which can then be used to add a probiotic boost (and fizz) to herbal sodas like ginger ale or root beer, and fruit sodas like blueberry, raspberry, or rhubarb.
