The warmer weather is on its way, so it’s time to start making my favourite summer beverages, like this refreshing ginger-lime sparkler from Thug Kitchen.
It’s so easy to prepare. I throw a quartered lime (skin on), two tablespoons of minced, fresh peeled ginger (I add a little extra), three tablespoons of sugar (I also like maple syrup), and a cup of water into my Vitamix blender. I blend for about a minute and strain (pulp in the compost). After I add another cup of water and stir, I put the contents in my fridge until I am ready to make a drink. A little ice, a little lime mix, and soda water (to taste), and I have a delicious thirst quencher.
