Refreshing Ginger Lemonade

When it's summertime and the living is easy, what nicer way to cool down than with a glass of homemade lemonade!! I've added freshly grated ginger to give the lemonade a burst of zing and extra freshness. It's super retro and perfect for serving at tea parties, kids parties and barbecues.


  • 4 lemons
  • 4 tbsp of caster sugar
  • 1 thumb size peeled and grated ginger
  • 2 litres of soda or sparkling water
  • Lots of ice


  1. Squeeze the juice of 2 lemons into a saucepan and add the sugar and ginger.
  2. Bring to the boil and allow to bubble for 10 minutes for the liquid to reduce to a syrup ( do not stir when sugar is on the heat)
  3. Allow the syrup to cool completely.
  4. Thinly slice 2 lemons and add to a jug of iced sparkling water/soda water.
  5. Pour in half the syrup, reserving the rest for a refill.

This would make a terrific vodka cocktail also, for those of us who would be inclined...
