Old Fashioned Ginger Lemonade

There is nothing better than the warming flavour of Ginger, especially on a dark windy crisp autumn evening. The ginger tones and the bitter lemon taste complement each other perfectly, and a good non-alcoholic punch, or add a sneaky drop of your favourite spirit or use in a cocktail (^-^)

What You Need:

1 unwaxed lemon roughly sliced and zest, 30g finely chopped ginger, 250g light brown sugar, 950ml Water

Add all the ingredients to a large saucepan, not all the water keep 250ml to one side. Boil up the ingredients whist continually  stirring to dissolve the sugar. Once boiling turn down to a simmering heat for 5 minutes. Take off the heat and  leave covered over night. The next day strain the mixture and bottle or pour into a jug, chill and then serve.

enjoy.

  3. Hey! Nice blog there! I like the way you describe your food before you start introducing the ingredients and steps to making it. Your pictures look great too. I love your bottles. Haha.

    By the way, is that a cheesecake? It sure looks yummy!

  4. Love ginger drinks…and this is no exception

  5. I tasted a similar ginger drink in Sénégal. They drink it quite frequently but very cold in order to cool down under the heating sun! It’s DELICIOUS! Can’t remember their name for it though..

    I’ll have to try this with Meyer lemons while our tree is still bearing. I imagine this would be excellent with dark rum, although great on its own.
