Being on a Whole 30, or strictly paleo, means no alcohol. Boooo! So having a refreshing alternative for warm days in the garden is good. This is really zesty and quite tart! But I like it like that 🙂 If it’s too strong you can just add more water or sparkling water.
Juice of 4 lemons with a few scrapes of lemon zest if you like it really lemony
Grated ginger – about a half thumb sized piece
Handful of chopped mint
2/3 kaffir lime leaves (optional)
1/1.5 litres of sparkling water
A few basil leaves torn
You could add a bit of honey and stir it in if you’re not being too strict
Put it all in a big jug and mix well.
Strain off to remove the little green bits. I used a tea strainer, but a sieve would be fine.
Enjoy over ice 🙂
