Here’s a nice refreshing drink with a different twist. It’s especially nice on a hot, summer day. I’d often make it and have it available to serve to customers on a busy Saturday during the summer.
6 cups water
1 ¼ cups sugar
¼ cup grated, peeled fresh ginger
1 ¼ cups fresh lemon juice (about 7 large lemons)
¼ cup fresh lime juice
Lemon and, or, lime slices (optional)
Combine 1 cup water, sugar, and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for one minute, or until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and cool.
Strain ginger mixture through a sieve into a pitcher, and discard solids.
Add 5 cups water and juices.
Serve over ice, and garnish with lemon and lime slices, if desired.
Makes approximately 8 cups lemonade.
