As promised


Lemon Lime and ginger cooler.

2/3 table spoons sugar
1 glug of maple syrup (optional)
1 inch fresh ginger peeled and grated
juice of 3 lemons
zest of 1 lemon
1 lime sliced
As a variation add a good handful of bruised mint leaves instead of lime slices.

Put sugar, maple syrup, grated ginger, lemon juice and zest in a 1 liter glass jug.
Pour on a little hot water to dissolve the sugar, mix well.
Top up with sparkling water add slices of lime and a ginger to garnish.
poor over ice.

Sit out in the garden and enjoy, or like us sit in the breeze of the open kitchen window and watch the summer street life.

Looks so cool and refreshing. It sounds like one of the best summer drink recipes I have found. I will make this when it gets a little warmer. I'll let you know what I think, but I know I will love it. It includes my favorites; lemons, lime, ginger, and mint! I have fresh mint growing in my back yard, so can't wait to use it when I make this. Thanks for sharing this!
