Here is a super easy recipe I came up with for a refreshing take on your typical lemonade. It’s a mixture of fresh lime, lemon, mint, ginger, vanilla and raw cane sugar. Nothing short of delicious. Try not to devour this before you serve it to your guest! Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
Juice of 7 limes and 4 lemons (or 2 cups of citrus juice)
1 tbs of freshly grated ginger
1 cup raw cane sugar (give or take)
6-8 cups water
Mint (for muddling and garnish)
Roll then squeeze the juice of all of your lemons and limes. This should give you roughly 2 cups of citrus juice (salivating already). Next freshly and finely grate your ginger until you have about a tablespoon. In a beverage pitcher add your cup of raw can sugar and a tiny bit of hot water to dissolve the sugar crystals. Now add in the citrus juice, ginger, mint and vanilla into the pitcher and muddle or mix for a minute or two. This helps all of the flavors to mend. Finally, add water to fill your pitcher. Should be about 6-8 cups depending on the size of your pitcher. Chill in the refrigerator or immediately serve over plenty of ice. Completely up to you! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
