How to make it?
Let your judgment guide you in making this drink. As last taste test is always a crucial step in all homemade drinks.
- Put ginger and water in a blender to blend into a smooth liquid.
- Add lemon juice.
- Add black salt and roasted ground cumin powder.
- Filter the liquid with a strainer and serve with ice cubes.
- Alternately, you can also use half water in blending and add half club soda just before serving to give this drink a further kick.
While many suggest making detox with soaked Lemon and ginger. I strongly feel lemon slices when soaked in water make the drink bitter and unpleasant. So this ginger lemonade is great to enjoy all benefits without tasting bad.
To reduce calories use less honey and balance it with rock salt that also boasts the taste.
- Both black salt and toasted cumin mellow the spice of ginger and the tartness of lemon. So all ingredients in this drink complement each other for great taste.
- In fact, you can cut water and add soda to ginger lemon drink to make a fizzy soft drink for guests which will help digestion after a formally heavy dinner.
