Veg: Ginger and raspberry lemonade

Most people that come to my home parties know that I am not a huge fan of fizzy drinks, but I prefer to serve freshly made lemonade. It is so easy to prepare in advance and a much healthier option. Recently I have learnt the recipe of an African lemonade with ginger, so I decided to try to mix and match and the results was worthy of sharing it online here. You will need a blender/magic bullet to make this lemonade. If worse comes to worst you can use a grinder.




  • 150 g ginger
  • 1 liter of water
  • 100g raspberries
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 6 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 6-8 lemons
  • mint leaves

Cooking time:  5-10 mins

Preparation: Wash the ginger and the fruits.


Blend the ginger with some water (100ml) and then strain the mixture through a sieve. Squeeze the lemon juice and mix with the ginger liquid. Add the honey, the maple syrup and the remaining water and mix very well. I don’t like to put sugar in my lemonade and I prefer the healthier options of honey and maple syrup, but that is a personal preference, so feel free to adjust as per your taste.

Crush the raspberries on the bottom of a glass and pour the lemonade on top. Decorate with mint.
