Ginger Limeade – A simple, 3 ingredient drink that is bright and refreshing. Homemade limeade with a ginger simple syrup mixed in and served over ice.
This ginger limeade is amazing! After making a batch ginger simple syrup the other day, I wanted to try to experiment with using it in different recipes and after making ginger lemonade, I knew the next thing I made had to be ginger limeade. This drink is so good! Light and refreshing, ginger limeade tastes like summer in a glass. I love the bit of zing that the ginger gives to the limeade 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 limeade 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!
