I realize that summer 2017 is coming to an end, but I am planning to enjoy every day that we have left. Lemonade is a summer favourite for most people and there is a cool coffee shop in my neighbourhood that makes the best honey ginger lemonade. Unfortunately, treating myself to a glass often can get pretty pricey so I have been making my version of this delicious beverage at home to enjoy on a regular basis. The other day I had some leftover pineapple in my fridge so I decided to make a variation of my summertime favourite beverage. A quick Google search taught me that I was not completely original in my thinking, as it turns out that pineapple ginger lemonade is a popular Indian beverage but I am quite fond of my variation so I still wanted to share it with all of you.
This recipe is super simple and is very easy to tailor to your own taste. Naturally sweetened with raw honey it also has some great health benefits (you can learn more about the benefits of raw honey here). Overall this recipe is refreshing and great if you are suffering with a summer cold as the ginger, lemon and honey will help you on the road to recovery.
