Whatabout Enos or Andrews salts,but you have to drink fast or again the fizz disappears.

You will have to add it to soda water to get fizz. Epsom salts is added as a preservative and the citric acid is just used to counteract all the sugar. Im not a fan of fizz so tastes better without imo lol

What about a sultana in the top. When I used to make gingerbeer I had to put a sultana in it.

Add yeast - either brewers yeast, wine yeast or simply a few (untreated) raisins.

Steer clear of the majority of sultanas and raisins (from your supermarket) which are nowadays treated with mineral oil (!) so they do not stick together and are nice and shiny. Get some organic ones instead.
