The Ginger Lime Refresher is a refreshing and energizing drink suitable for any occasion. You can have a glass first thing in the morning or as a delicious pick me up in the middle of the day, served over ice or at room temperature.

My mom is a strong believer in ginger. When I was little she would give me homemade cough syrup infused with ginger. She would also give it to me when I was nauseous. Ginger can also be used as an essential ingredient in many dishes. Ginger is used a lot in Asian cuisine, like in my Honey Soy Chicken.

Ginger Lime Refresher

The Ginger Lime Refresher combines lime with the ginger, to create a drink with vibrant and robust flavors. You can also add mint, honey, or a non sugar sweetener to add a touch of sweetness to this drink. This drink only takes minutes to prepare.

You can use your favorite sparkling water in place of water to add a carbonated flavor. I like Pellegrino, but you chose the one you love! It will taste almost like ginger beer.
