For a refreshing homemade drink, you can't beat this delicious recipe. Perfect to serve as an non-alcohol alternative at Christmas functions and very refreshing in our beautiful summer.



4 medium fresh lemon(s)   

1 tsp fresh ginger   

6 glass(es) natural mineral water, (1 litre)   

2 Tbsp artificial sweetener powder   

3 Tbsp fresh mint, (3 sprigs)   
  • Use a potato peeler to pare the zest from 3 of the lemons into long strips. Place strips in a heatproof bowl with the grated ginger. Pour in 1 cup of boiling water and leave to infuse and cool for 10 minutes.
  • Strain the lemon and ginger mixture into a large jug. Add the squeezed lemon juice, mineral water and the sweetener to taste.
  • Share between 4 to 6 glasses. Add several ice cubes, a few mint sprigs and lemon slices to garnish.
  • Chill the glasses in the refrigerator to keep the drinks as cool as possible.
  • Try using lime slices or wedges instead of the lemon in this drink, or how about a combination of both?
