Ginger lemonade

    10 min

    What a refreshing, fiery twist on lemonade. Freeze some of this into ice cubes to use in the drinks, so it won't be diluted!

    This was a very refreshing beverage. I love the ginger! The recipe is a little sweet, so if you like your lemonade more tart (like me), scale back the sugar some.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Didn't care for this much. The lemonade sticks to your mouth and isn't particularly refreshing.  -  15 Sep 2008


    This is the best lemonade I've ever tasted! My whole family loves it. I've shared some with my friends and they ask for more! The ginger smooths the edges of the tart lemon juice and adds a wonderful dimension to an old favourite. Thanks!  -  15 Sep 2008
