Lemon, ginger and mint infused drink

This lovely, fresh, uplifting drink will give you a pick-me-up on hot days (or even cooler ones).  It also has some excellent health benefits; lemon and ginger are thought to be beneficial for digestion as well as being high in vitamin content.

 Recipe:

2 whole large lemons, sliced into rounds
3cm piece fresh ginger, sliced thinly
1/3 cup raw caster sugar
6 cups boiling water
1/2 cup lemon juice, sieved (about 2 medium sized lemons)
Small handful of mint leaves

Place all ingredients into a large heatproof vessel. Pour over the boiling water. Allow to cool to room temperature while the flavours infuse.  Sieve into jug, stir well then refrigerate until cold.

Add extra mint leaves and ice to serve.

Serves: 6

      Thanks for re-creating this healthy and refreshing drink that I’ve made years ago…did not use mint, great idea. Now, I can put my fresh ginger to good use instead of neglecting it in my fridge veggie box:DDD

      You had me at ginger, as I am a ginger fanatic. Sounds like a perfect sipper for summer.

      I found your site via Tastespotting. This drink looks amazing. I can’t wait to make a batch and sip it at my next cookout. Though I can definitely see myself spicing it up with a bit of gin ;)

      Sounds ridiculously easy to make. I have a feeling this recipe will be used quite often this summer.

      This looks delicious and refreshing. Even though the weather has been less then perfect to say the least this would be something I would looooove to have now! Saw it on dessertstaking and just had to come and take a closer look!
