Method

  1. Put the ginger and lemon in a bowl, pour over 300ml water and blitz with a hand blender until very smooth. Strain through a sieve into a bowl, then press the pulp to remove as much liquid as you can. Add the sugar to the bowl and blitz again.
  2. Decant into a bottle. Chill until ready to use. Add the lemonade or sparkling water to dilute before serving.

This is delicious. I kept it in the fridge for over 2 weeks and it was still great.

Really nice, didn't bother with the sugar, as thought there'd be enough in the lemonade itself, lovely and refreshing!

Gorgeous fresh lemon and ginger taste and really quick and easy to make. We tried it with sparkling water and couldn't get rid of the strong sparkling water taste, so tried it with lemonade and it was divine. I'll certainly be making lots more using this recipe.
