ginger lemonade

Dominic was sick this week so i went to walmart and bought all the things you buy when someone is sick ...excpept ginger ale.

the kid hates soda, he says its too spicy.

so instead i bough a box of english breakfast tea, a lemon and a ginger root.

a relatively small ginger root.

but it doesnt take much ginger root to make an acceptable ginger tea, so now i have a chunk of ginger root.

this being the very first time i have ever worked with a real ginger root, i decided to start experimenting.
i consulted google.

then mixed up a batch of minced ginger, the juice of one lemon and a big squirt of honey in my empty *tear* kombucha bottle.

let it sit overnight in the fridge then mixed it wit as much seltzer water as the bottle would hold, about 14 oz.
i strained this through a coffee filter and chilled it.

the results...YUM.

Mmm, sounds yummy. Ginger root is essential at my house. Diced ginger steeped in a cup of boiling water is great for indigestion...especially from beans.
I'm getting ready to order this.
