London is experiencing some incredible heat this bank holiday weekend so I needed to rustle up something cool and refreshing with what was lying around my kitchen. The end result was this lemonade-like concoction!
I always put fruit that’s on its date in ziploc bags and in my freezer. Usually it’s to put in a gin & tonic…
Handy tip: freeze the garnishes you put in your spirit and mixer (or even just water to jazz it up) as it keeps the drink colder for longer!
…but I ended up using the slices of root ginger, lemon and lime in this alcohol-free drink this time.
In a few hours I could definitely add in a little gin or rum…
So grab yourself a bottle of tonic water, a handful of ice and whatever fruit you can get your hands on!
In my fruity tonic:
500ml Tonic Water
2 thumbs of peeled Root Ginger
1 tpsn Honey
and a handful of ice.
Put it all in a jug, mix and enjoy!
Have a safe bank holiday weekend everyone. If you’re in the sunshine please wear a high SPF and drink plenty of water.
Until next time,
