Ginger Simple Syrup
With lemonade and limeade season just around the corner, I have been experimenting with so many different varieties and flavors in order to find the best of the best. One of my personal favorites that I have made has been ginger lemonade. Made with fresh lemonade, honey, and ginger simple syrup, it was a refreshing drink with a bit of a zing that tasted like summer in a glass. To make the recipe, I first had to perfect the ginger simple syrup which was super easy to make. All you will need is granulated white sugar, water, and ginger root.
To make the simple syrup, just boil those three things together for about 10 minutes and strain out the ginger. That’s it! Once it’s done, just store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. I am so excited to try putting it in even more drinks!
