How to make Fresh Ginger Lemonade Recipe

  1. To make the Fresh Ginger Lemonade, first place the grated ginger and lemon juice in a small saucepan and let it sit for 2-3 minutes to allow the mixture to turn pink.

  2. Next, add the sugar and ¼ cup water to the saucepan, place it on high heat and bring the mixture to a boil.

  3. Lower the heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes, stirring to ensure the sugar has dissolved.

  4. Take the saucepan off the heat and give it allow it to return to room temperature.

  5. If you’re in a hurry, you can add 2-3 cubes of ice to it and give it a good shake in a shaker.

  6. Divide the cooled ginger-lemon concentrate into 4 glasses, add a few cubes of ice and top with club soda.

  7. Garnish with a slice of lemon and/or a sprig of mint.

  8. Serve the Fresh Ginger Lemonade on a hot summer afternoon as a refreshing drink.

If possible, use fresh (young) and slightly pink ginger as this is softer and has more juice than fibre.

Feel free to substitute the sugar with your preferred sweetener or use honey/jaggery/maple syrup.

A few other ingredients that go really well with the lemon-ginger combination are green apple and/or cucumber. You can add slices of either of these to your drink to make it look prettier and taste better too.
