The "ginger" in this drink comes from ginger ale. Note: Lemons at room temperature will yield the most juice. You might also want to try warming them a bit in the microwave. Garnish each glass with lemon slices, wedges, twists or curls. Enjoy!

I DO LOVE YOUR BEVERAGES, & this one is no exception! Ginger ale isn't my favorite drink by any means, but when combined with the lemon juice . . . REALLY GREAT! Definitely worth keeping around! Thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe cooking game]

Fabulous lemonade, Lainey! I have been making lemonade with club soda for years, but the ginger ale does add a lot to the flavor! This is a super simple recipe and I know I will be serving this often : )

What a lovely drink Lainey. I enjoyed this lemony ginger ale drink very much. It was quick and easy to make and tasted great. Sweet, tart and tangy, with a subtle ginger taste. I used Spicy Ginger Ale, it was so delilcious, just the perfect drink for sitting on the deck on a sunny afternoon. Thanks so much for sharing.
