  • 2-in piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced thinly
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • Sparkling water

In a saucepan, combine sugar, water, and ginger. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves.Image Remove from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature. Stir in lemon juice. Pour the mixture through a sieve and store in a clean jar with a tight lid. Store in the fridge for up to one month.Image
To serve, mix syrup (depends on how tart/strong you like your lemonade) with ice cubes and sparkling water.

Things to Consider and Ways to JAZZ it UP:
