Last weekend was full of festivities as we celebrated several birthdays, a fantasy draft party ( not me personally by our home was the designated host location ) and Labor Day.
We love a good gathering for whatever reason it may be and I knew it’d be the perfect opportunity to mix up a drink that wasn’t a cocktail. Don’t worry we had cocktails too, but this ginger lemonade recipe was so tasty, I couldn’t forgo sharing it with you! It’s so important to me that I serve both alcoholic beverages and non-alcoholic beverages for my guests, always looking out for designated drivers and mommas to be. Did you know that ginger is a natural anti nausea?!?
If you like a lot of ginger you could amp up your game, but following the recipe below will give you a mild and sweet ginger essence.
