  • 100g ginger, scrubbed and roughly chopped
  • 1 lemon, chopped
  • 100g light muscovado sugar
  • 1-litre bottle chilled lemonade or sparkling water, to serve


  1. Put the ginger and lemon in a bowl, pour over 300ml water and blitz with a hand blender until very smooth. Strain through a sieve into a bowl, then press the pulp to remove as much liquid as you can. Add the sugar to the bowl and blitz again.

  2. Decant into a bottle. Chill until ready to use. Add the lemonade or sparkling water to dilute before serving.
