ginger lemonade.


Lately I find myself craving ginger in any form. I think it started when we bought a juicer and I discovered the wonders of orange/carrot/ginger juice (a must have now on a daily basis) The spiciness of the ginger adds a refreshing zing and helps settle my stomach as well.
Last night I whipped up some ginger syrup, so today I could make some ginger lemonade.

Ginger Syrup:

1 cup rough chopped, scrubbed, ginger root.
2 cups sugar
2 cups water

place all ingredients in medium saucepan, bring to a boil. simmer for one hour. strain.

Ginger Lemonade:

Juice of 1/2 a lemon
3-4 Tbls. ginger syrup
8 ounces water
ice

Shake all ingredients in a mason jar until well chilled. Adjust syrup to taste. (I used 4 Tbls., but I like it zesty)

Drink on your balcony.
