Holy sweatballs it is hot! We needed a cool refreshment, ice cold lemonade would be nice, sans the kilos of sugar please & thank you! Lemons are antibacterial, antiviral, immune boosting, aids ingestion and helps cleanse the liver. Ginger is loaded with antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory and is an excellent for alleviating gastrointestinal distress.
1/2-1 cup fresh lemon juice (depends how lemony you like it)
1/2 cup finely chopped mint
4 kaffir lime leaves, finely chopped
Zest of 2-3 lemons
1.25l sparking mineral water/soda water
2 tbs freshly grated ginger
In a large jug muddle together all ingredients except mineral water OR if you have a stick blender use that to blitz everything together. Pour over mineral water and mix well. That’s it. You’re done. I strained off the green bits for the photo because it looked a bit like I had lawn clippings in my jar but I actually drank it with all the special green stuff 🙂 This would be delicious as a cocktail…..
