The TikTok that you are about to see is one for the ages. TikTok user @crawking shared it with the world and explained how to make ginger ale at home.

According to him, all you need to create the popular beverage is…..two other very popular beverages, Coca-Cola and Spite.


@crawking claims that you need to have the right combination of Coke and Sprite if you would like to achieve ginger ale perfection. He says that you need to mix a “splash of Coke” with Sprite to get the right taste.
