Honey Ginger Lemonade



Capture the essence of the summer sun and the natural goodness it brings in this invigorating beverage. I like to combine fresh honey my neighbor gives me with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and a twist of ginger to add a unique kick to this old-time favorite summer refresher.




1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 cup honey

1/4 cup peeled fresh ginger slices

7 sprigs fresh mint

2 cups purified water

4 cups ice cubes




Put the juice, honey, ginger, and 1 chopped sprig of the mint in a large pitcher and stir, pressing the mint and ginger to release flavor.

Add the water and stir until the honey dissolves, then add the ice.

Pour into six 10-ounce glasses and garnish each glass with a sprig of mint and a fancy straw.

Tips form Rosie’s Kitchen

Children three years old and younger can become seriously ill from honey, so please don’t give them a glass of this lemonade. However, you can use local honey to help battle against seasonal allergies for older children and adults. Honey’s thick coating with the vitamin C in lemons combine perfectly to soothe a sore throat and help treat a cold.
