Ginger Lemonade


Cold and refreshing this is just the thing for summertime, and making it couldn’t be simpler.
A spicy ginger lemonade.
1/3 pound fresh unpeeled ginger root, cut
into 1/2-inch chunks
1 1/2 cups water
4 large lemons, juiced
1 cup white sugar
7 cups water
16 leaves fresh mint, crushed
1. Place ginger into a blender, cover with 1 1/2 cup water, and blend until ginger is thick and pasty. Strain and squeeze juice from ginger pulp into a 2-quart pitcher, squeezing ginger mixture as dry as possible.
2. Stir lemon juice and sugar into ginger juice until sugar has dissolved. Pour 7 cups water into mixture, stir to combine, and serve garnished with crushed mint leaves.
3.A splash of vodka would only make it better.
