Colorado has been hot, hot, hot since before we landed from our trip to Alaska. Cool drinks like this Ginger and Lemongrass Lemonade are perfect for this weather.
Now, my boys are all ‘fine’ with the powdered lemonade mix. But, not so for me as I want complete control over my ingredients whenever possible.
Homemade Ginger and Lemongrass Lemonade
Homemade lemonade is such a great summertime treat. It’s delicious, refreshing and so easy to make.
With just a couple of ingredients, you can be serving up this “Gourmet” version in no time!
Lemongrass is not something you might have picked up at the store in the past. It is thick and tubular.
The base of this homemade Ginger and Lemongrass Lemonade is a simple syrup. This takes a few minutes to prepare on the stove, but is oh so worth it!
If the combination of ginger with lemongrass is not your favorite, play around making the simple syrup with other ingredients even if it is just a regular lemon.
Users of essential oils may like putting a drop or two of lemon essential oil for a true pop.
The finished product is sure to get you rave reviews. Or, maybe you just want to enjoy it yourself.
