A twist on classic lemonade, Honey Ginger lemonade is the perfect refreshing drink to help lift your mood. The juiced ginger helps add a little spicy kick, while both lemon juice and Lemon oil keep the recipe light and cool. The addition of Lemon oil is important as it provides cleansing benefits for your organs.* Raw honey has been used since ancient times for a variety of health purposes. In this recipe, the raw honey is a necessary addition—not only as a sweetener, but also as an antibacterial element.
1–2 tablespoons ginger, juiced
3 lemons, juiced
3–5 drops Lemon oil
1 cup water
⅓ cup raw honey
1 cup ice
