Ginger Lemonade

Fresh and tangy, this lemonade-with-a-twist will quench any thirst. What a great twist on lemonade. Freeze some of this into ice cubes to use in the drinks, so it won't be diluted!


20 servings


3 cups granulated (white) sugar
4 quarts water
14 slices fresh ginger root, (about 2-inch piece)
4 cups fresh lemon juice (24 lemons)
2 lemons, sliced


In an 8-quart saucepan combine sugar, water and ginger root. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. Cool 15 minutes.

Remove ginger. Refrigerate lemonade at least 1 hour, or until chilled. Serve over ice, and garnish with lemon slices.

Estimated Time

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cool Time: 15 minutes
Chill Time: 1 hour

Additional Information

Peeling fresh ginger root is easy; just scrape the skin off using the rounded tip of a spoon.

Make extra lemonade, and use it to make ice cubes. Pour lemonade over lemonade ice cubes, and the flavor won't dilute as the ice melts.
