Our Ginger Lemonade recipe maximizes the bright flavor of fresh-squeezed lemon juice and lemon zest, and adds just enough sweetness to temper its tartness. We muddled (or mashed together) a thinly sliced lemon and fresh ginger with sugar to sweeten the lemonade. In this process, the sugar crystals absorb the intense flavor of the oils in the lemon peel and bring out the lemon’s and ginger’s flavor, making for a lemonade recipe that can cool down any summer day.
