Ginger-honey lemonade

before i left for the woods in Östergötland i tossed off a gingerly intense lemonade. it was perfect by the lake in the hot afternoon sun. the measurements are not very precise – sample it until it’s to your liking, and remember that it need to be quite concentrated and strong since you’ll dilute it with soda when it’s time for drinking.

no frills lemonade – enough for one pitcher
around 6 inches ginger, grated
around 3 limes, washed and cut in wedges
around 5 lemons, washed and cut in wedges
around 300 ml honey
water

put the ginger, lemons and limes in a in a wide pot, squeezing the juice out of the wedges as you go along. add the honey and water until it almost covers the fruit. bring to a boil and let boil for a couple of minutes. sample the taste and add honey to you’re liking. pour the lemonade on clean glass bottles, leaving the skin and occasional seeds. if you want a smooth lemonade, this is where you strain it. personally i like the texture of the pulp and grated ginger. the lemonade keeps in the fridge for a couple of days. to serve just add soda water (ratio 1:4), ice and maybe some mint leaves. i dare say that this would work well with a splash of white rum or some gin as well.
