Let's dive into this easy-to-make, thirst-quenching refresher that will have you sipping your way to wellness! This delightful concoction combines the citrusy zing of pink lemonade with the subtle warmth of fresh ginger. Ginger is known to soothe digestion, improve immunity, and reduce inflammation. Prep the syrup ahead of time to create this drink quickly and easily for your guests. For a refreshing, summer mocktail version, omit gin.
TRUE ROOTS SIMPLE SYRUP
2" piece of fresh ginger
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
TRUE ROOTS SPARKLING LEMONADE
6 cups club soda
1⁄4 cup cranberry juice or pomegranate juice
4 oz gin, optional
- To make simple syrup, finely grate ginger (don’t peel); place in Multipurpose Pot. Add sugar and water. Stir to combine. Add tea bags. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 min. Gently press tea bags with the back of a spoon to release more flavour and colour. Using a fine mesh sieve, strain. Pour into a glass and chill.
- Slice lemons in half. Using 2-in-1 Citrus Press, squeeze juice from lemons into a large pitcher. Add club soda, juice, simple syrup, and gin, if using. Stir gently to combine.
- Divide between eight glasses filled with ice.
