This summer, much of Australia has been plunged into heatwave after heatwave. It’s been so hot that the Bureau of Meteorology has needed to add extra colours to its temperature graphs to show how high the temperatures are reaching.
And so, to keep our fluids up at Chez Bee, we have been drinking A LOT of a very refreshing twist on home-made lemonade. Maybe you’ll find it refreshing the next time you’re in a heat wave or just want a cool drink on a summers day?
To a large glass add about four thin slices of fresh ginger, 3 or four sprigs of mint, the juice of half a lemon and a heaped teaspoon of honey. Of course, all of these ingredients are too taste so experiment around until you find the right combination for you. Muddle this all in together. You especially want to have the honey well mixed in and the ginger and mint well bruised. Fill up with water and plenty of ice cubes. Enjoy!
