Refreshing Ginger Lemonade

  • Author: Johnniemay McDonald

  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Delicious homemade refreshing ginger lemonade.


Units Scale
  • 1 piece of ginger root (peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh squeezed lemon juice


  1. Combine the ginger root, sugar, and water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Be sure to stir to get help the sugar dissolve. Bring it to a boil. Let it boil for 2-3 minutes. Do not burn! Remove the ginger syrup from the heat and let it cool for a minute.
  2.  Juice the lemons. I used a citrus juicer to make it easier.
  3. Set up your strainer over your bowl. Then carefully strain the ginger syrup. With the same bowl and strainer, strain the lemon juice.
  4. Pour the ginger lemonade into a pitcher. I do not add water to this concentrate because I serve it as a mocktail or cocktail, but if you want to serve it as it is, simply add a cup of cool water and serve or ice.
