Home Made Velvet Ginger Lemonade
1 cup agave nectar
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 whole organic lemon, well scrubbed and chopped into pieces
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger, or more to taste
fresh mint leaves
6 to 8 cups of filtered water, sparkling mineral water, or soda water
1. Heat the agave and lemon juice in a saucepan until dissolved. Allow to cool.
2. Place this “syrup” in the blender with the whole lemon and freshly grated ginger and blend until frothy.
3. Stir through the desired amount of water and serve garnished with fresh mint leaves. You could add more freshly grated ginger for an extra punch.
This non-alcoholic drink is so refreshing on a hot Summer day. For a cocktail you could always add in some Vodka.
