I’ve been sick with a really strong bout of flu for the last two days. Staying home with flu is very boring indeed. Besides, summer is for enjoying the outdoors and going to the beach. It’s not so much for staying in bed with a high temperature, breathing problems, and total lethargy.
Anyway, I’m happy to report that as from about one hour ago I’m feeling a lot better and it looks like tomorrow I can go back to work again. I’m sure my lemonade has something to do with it. I’ve been drinking it throughout the day. The vitamins from the lemons and ginger seems to have done a pretty good job. (The paracetamol I took too).
This lemonade infused with ginger can be considered like the cool summery version of this infusion.
Lemons – 3 medium sized
Ginger – 2cm piece, peeled
Sugar – 3 tablespoons
Squeeze the juice out of the lemons and pour into a bottle. Put the ginger and sugar in a bowl with a small quantity of water. Boil until the sugar is well dissolved, but not caramelized. This will impede the sugar from crystallizing in the lemonade later on. Remove the ginger and pour the dissolved sugar into the bottle. Fill up the rest of the bottle with water. Chill in the fridge.
