I made this for my dad's birthday since he loves ginger. The whole family loved it! My mom hates ginger, but even she wants me to make this recipe again. It is wonderful!
I have grown up drinking this fresh Ginger juice. I can tell you that it is the healthiest drink that I never get tired of.
- It is good for you.
tasty drink! I wasn't sure how tart is was supposed to be, but I felt the need to add more sugar. Refreshing served over ice.
Well this certainly brought back memories! I haven't tried "this" recipe/method, but I used to live in Mali where this was one of my favorite refreshing drinks. I basically grate my ginger and add it to my fresh lemonade. I never saw it served w/the mint garnish... might try it though. Thanks for the memories! :)
