Ginger Lemonade – A simple, 3 ingredient drink that is bright and refreshing. Homemade lemonade with a ginger simple syrup mixed in and served over ice.
I can’t get enough of this ginger lemonade! After making a batch ginger simple syrup the other day, I wanted to try to experiment with using it in different recipes and the first thing I tried was ginger lemonade. This drink is so good! Light and refreshing, ginger lemonade tastes like summer in a glass. I love the bit of zing that the ginger gives to the lemonade while also not being over powering.
Now this recipe makes about 4-6 servings but you can always double or even triple it if you are making it for a group. I suggest tasting it as you go and adjusting it to your preference as there is such a wide variety of preference for lemonade with some liking it to be more tart while others preferring it to be sweeter. Regardless of how much of each ingredient you use, it is bound to be a delicious treat!

* If you are using my ginger simple syrup recipe, make a double batch as the recipe makes 1 cup of simple syrup. You need that much because it is the sweetener for the drink.
