Lime-Ginger Sparkling Water

Posted on

On hot days I find water with a little flavour to be more thirst-quenching than plain water. This is just water with some ginger and lime added; if you want something closer to lemonade I would recommend adding sugar to the ginger so that you get syrup rather than ginger-infused water.

Ingredients

  • 4 cm piece of ginger root, chopped
  • 200 ml water
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/2 liters bubbly water

Process

Chop the ginger root and add it to the 200 ml of plain water. Bring to a boil and then allow it to steep, off the heat, until it reaches room temperature. Strain out the ginger and add the liquid to a pitcher.

Add the lime juice to the ginger-infused water. Top with cold bubbly water. (I make mine from tap water using Sodastream; if you buy your water you may as well already buy it with flavouring!)
