Ginger-Lemon Drink

Hi and welcome to Little Miss Holly,
For this blog post I will be showing you a recipe for a Ginger and Lemonade Drink. I think this is a great refreshment for hot summer days and picnics.

Ginger and Lemonade Drink

Makes: Approx 1 litre                              Time to make: from 2 hours

INGREDIENTS:

-Juice of 5 lemons (I used the Lemon Fresh 100% Lemon Juice but you can juice the lemons yourself)

-Ginger (I used 50g but it depends how much you like ginger)

-Water (approx 7 cups)

-Sugar (100g)


METHOD:

-Peel the ginger then chop into pieces

-Pour sugar, 1 cup of water and chopped ginger into a saupan

-Put sauspan on a stove and bring to boil over medium-high heat, let simmer for 5 minutes then remove from heat

-Place lid on sauspan and set asside, off the heat. This will allow the ginger to steep into the sugar syrup. I let it steep for 30 minutes but if you are after more bite to the drink allow it to steep for longer

-Pour the syrup into a heat proof cotainer, mason jar etc and place in fridge, leave it in there until cool

-Now it is time to mix the syrup, lemon juice and remaining water (but this part totally depends on you, so as you are adding in the liquids, be sure to taste it so you get the perfect combination).

-Add in some ice cubes and your done!


For lemonade ice blocks, make this recipie and pour the mixture into ice bloock moulds and let them freeze in the freezer.

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you have any questions or requests please feel free to leave a comment.
