This is lemonade with attitude. It's like a mix of ginger beer and lemonade: tangy, spicy and just a tiny bit sweet.

Directions

Click:

  1. Wash the ginger, and grate it into a pulp. Gather the pulp into your fist and squeeze with your hands over a pitcher to extract the juice*. Discard the pulp. Note, the more ginger you use, the spicier the kick. If you want a subtle ginger flavour, just cut the ginger into slices and add to the mix, instead of grating and squeezing.
  2. Add the mint to the pitcher, and using a wooden spatula or wooden tamper, give the mint a mash. We want to bruise the mint leaves slightly, just enough to extract some of their flavours into the drink.
  3. To the pitcher, then add the lemon juice, water, ice cubes, and agave syrup. Stir it all, and serve immediately. Add more syrup if the drink tastes too tart. Cheers!

Notes

  • * If you are squeezing the ginger by hand, you might notice it can irritate your skin, especially if you have any cuts. Wash your hands well afterward. Alternatively, you can also use a nut milk bag, or a thin, clean dish towel to squeeze out the liquid, or if you have a juicer, you can just put the ginger through that.

Storage

  • The ginger, lemon juice, and syrup concentrate can be prepared and kept in a mason jar in the fridge for up to 2 days. Simply dilute with water and ice cubes when you're ready for a refreshing drink.
