A refreshingly zingy, tangy, sweet (but not too sweet) lemon drink laced with lashings of fresh ginger. My husband described this David Lebovitz recipe as 'the best thing to come out of COVID isolation.'
750ml/ 3 cups water
Thinly slice the fresh ginger and place in a saucepan with the sugar and water.
For an enhanced lemon flavour, peel the zest from 2 lemons with a vegetable peeler and add to the ginger in the saucepan.
Bring to the boil over a moderate heat and when boiling, turn off the heat and allow to sit for around an hour for the flavours to infuse and the liquid to cool.
When cool, add the lemon juice, strain and bottle.
Store in the fridge and serve with ice and sparkling water to taste
