Ginger-flavored soda noted for its ability to calm an upset stomach. The recommended beverage to drink if the primary ingredient in your breakfast or other first meal of the day (if you wake up at 1pm and eat at 2:30, I don't think you can call that breakfast) is grease. While some may dismiss this property of ginger ale as an old wives' tale, with no more validity than the hiccup cures that your grandparents told you in your youth, it does work, and ginger ale is a lot cheaper, easier to find, easier to drink than Pepto Bismol.
