I found this receipe awhile back, and I really enjoy it. it is a sweet-tart beverage. 6 cups cold water divided 1/2 cup sugar(adjust sugar to your taste) 3 tablespoon chopped peeled fresh ginger 3 tablespoon grated lime rind 10 mint leaves 1 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 6 limes) 4 lime wedges(optional) Combine 1/4 cup water, sugar, ginger, rind and mint leaves in a blender and process until well blended. Cover, chill for 2 hours. Add remaining 5 3/4 cups water and juice, stir to combine. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired. Yield 4 servings. (serving size 2 cups).

Thank you very much for sharing this with us. I am always looking for ways to add ginger to my diet because it is so good for the body. This actually sounds yummy, I can't wait to try it.

You are right ginger is really good. My mom always gave us ginger tea for a tummy ache.

Thanks for this great looking recipe. I just cut and pasted it out and am looking forward to trying it. I am just getting over a rather severe upper respiratory infection and think the combinations in your recipe will give the body a much needed boost. Also we like to have pot luck gatherings and I am sure it will be a hit with all the guests. We have been having sweltering heat and humidity in Southwestern Manitoba this summer and I look forward to sitting out on the deck with a tall glass of Ginger Limeabe over ice. Glad you chose to share!
