This refreshing beverage was originally posted by Grandmother Wisdom in March of this year. Lemonade is a great drink for anytime of the year, but it is especially good in the summertime to cool off on those steamy days.
Please click the link for the recipe, and make some of Grandmother’s Ginger Lemonade, today! Enjoy.
Refreshing lemonade to make at anytime of the year, but especially to cool off when the temperatures rise.
1 cup sugar (can reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 tbsp chopped, fresh ginger
1 cup water (for simple syrup)
1 cup Lemon Juice
4 cups Water, Cold to dilute
1. Make simple syrup by heating the sugar, adding a tablespoon of chopped, fresh ginger, and water in a small saucepan until the sugar is dissolved completely.
2. While the sugar is dissolving, use a juicer to extract the juice from 4 to 6 lemons, enough for one cup of juice.
3. Add the juice and the sugar-water to a pitcher. Add 3 to 4 cups of cold water, more or less to the desired strength. Refrigerate 30 to 40 minutes. If the lemonade is a little sweet for your taste, add a little more straight lemon juice to it.
4. Serve with ice, sliced lemons.
Serving Ideas: Add sliced strawberries or blueberries to the final lemonade.
