Guys, what kind of Ginger Ale are you drinking? I haven't found a brand with real ginger yet. I sometimes have nausea and it would help me greatly but I never bought those Ales when they don't have real ginger in it.
If you want something very gingery, may I suggest ginger beer? Gosling's is my favorite, it's got a nice, zesty ginger flavor unlike a lot of ginger ales that are pretty weak. It's also great with a squeeze of lime.
I'm a diet coke drinker myself, primarily for the caffeine.
