Ginger Lemonade

    10 mins

    What a refreshing, fiery twist on the classic, flat lemonade. Freeze some of this into ice cubes to use in the drinks, so it won't be diluted. Garnish with extra sliced lemons or use slices of lemon rind from the leftover juiced fruit.

    This is the best lemonade I've ever tasted! My whole family loves it. I've shared some with my friends and they ask for more! The ginger smooths the edges of the tart lemon juice and adds a wonderful dimension to an old favorite. Thanks!  -  05 May 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Didn't care for this much. The lemonade sticks to your mouth and isn't particularly refreshing.  -  30 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
