Summer Coolers ~ Ginger Mint Lemonade

Ginger Mint Lemonade

Mint-y, ginger-y, tang-y lemonade – one of my favorite thirst quencher for those hot sultry days. Nothing to beat a homemade summertime beverage that is sure to please your family and friends at a picnic or barbeque party.

How to prepare Ginger Mint Lemonade

1. 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.

2. 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.

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

4. 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 salt to taste and combine. Adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar syrup and if it needs to be more tart, add more lime juice.

5. Pour into glasses and serve with ice.

For those who want to avoid sugar, replace sugar syrup with a cup of honey or any sweetener of your choice. A pinch of roasted cumin powder or chaat masala powder can be added to each glass of lemonade for added flavor.

  1. Wow, So refreshing! Perfect timing as i was fed up with the heat and looking for something to cool down. Thank you Sailu for another great recipe.

  2. I remember having this in a restaurant in Bangalore on Lavelle road (don’t remember the name for the life of me! – I just like my grand mom now!!). I loved it when I had it! Will definitely try it out, its perfect for the crazy socal weather we’re having now… thanks for posting! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Wow! looks tempting in this hot summer…
    Can the syrup be preserved without adding the cold water and fresh mint leaves so that we can prepare the syrup and use it multiple times….

    1. You can make the concentrate and refrigerate it. Add chilled water to the concentrate at the time of serving.

    Many diseases are caused when our body is not in the correct balance.

    Nowadays, maintaining a balance with our busy lifestyles can be quite
    challenging. The quality of foods, a variety of diets and supplements
    can be overwhelming.

    What we need first and foremost is a balanced diet that is more
    alkaline than acidic. That way our organs will function properly, and
    our skeletal health will remain strong.

    Nature has provided us with a humble little seed, the quinoa, which
    is a powerhouse of nutrients. Queens Quinoa- Grain & Flour is the
    first naturally grown grain that can help us to maintain an excellent
    health.
