Ginger Mint Lemonade

 

Prepare sugar syrup first by simmering a cup of water to which 2/3 cup sugar or brown sugar is added. Allow sugar to dissolve completely and cool. Keep aside.

 In another vessel, bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Turn off heat and add half a tbsp of chopped ginger and 1/2 cup of fresh mint leaves. Place lid and allow to steep. After 10-15 mts, strain the liquid and cool. Discard mint and ginger.

 Extract juice from 9-10 limes or approx 1 cup of lime juice. Strain and discard the seeds. Keep aside.

 Take a pitcher and add 8-9 cups of cold water, add the extracted lime juice, cooled sugar syrup and ginger-mint infusion and combine. Add 1/4 cup of fresh mint leaves and a tsp of salt and combine. Adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar syrup and if it needs to be more tart, add more lime juice.

Pour into glasses and serve with ice
