Fresh Mint and Ginger Lemonade

I love the gingery-zing, and the mint flavour that this delicious lemonade has. Very refreshing. 40 minutes passive cooking time is actually steeping time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine chopped mint, ginger and honey in medium bowl; add boiling water and allow to steep for 30-40 minutes; strain into 4-cup glass measuring cup, pressing on solids to extract liquid; add lemon juice and enough cold water to measure 4 cups total.
  2. Fill glasses with ice cubes; add lemonade; garnish with mint leaves and fresh lemon slices.
  3. Note: If you like to 'tipple' (I know I do:-)), spike this with some vodka!!!

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Evelyn. I enjoyed this refreshing lemonade treat. It was tart tangy, spicy and slightly sweet. I really like lemon, honey, ginger and mint so this seemed tailor made for me. I used spearmint in the lemonade it worked great. Made for Culinary Quest - 2014 - Suitcase Gourmets.

I reduced the ginger substantially to about 2 1/2 tablespoons. Fresh mint from our garden! The mixture was strained twice to remove any residual ginger peel. Perfect beverage for a 95º+ summer day. Thanks, Ev'! Prepared for CQ 2014.

Very good lemonade! This recipe combined 3 ingredients I love: honey, mint and ginger.<br/>This is a summer hit, but I'm sure it will be delicious hot (reheating it!) in winter too.
