Ginger + Honey Sparkling Lemonade

Ginger + Honey Sparkling Lemonade

I used to think I didn’t really like lemonade – until I made it last summer for the first time with actual lemons. I should have started making the real stuff a long time ago, because now I’m completely hooked. There’s simply no substitute for the crisp, tart and sweet flavor of real, homemade lemonade.

This ginger and honey infused recipe yields enough to share with friends and family, but you can easily make the lemonade base and store it in the refrigerator. When the craving hits, just pour a bit of the base in a glass filled with ice, add seltzer and enjoy! Add herbs like basil or mint, fresh fruit or alcohol such as rum or vodka to create endless variations!
