Firewater – Raw Spicy Ginger Lemonade
This recipe was inspired by a conversation at lunch yesterday with a new friend who is a TEDx2012 speaker and raw food fan. I also happened to have a bunch of Meyers Lemons from my father in law and my wife is preparing for a juice fast this week which got me thinking about different types of juice. It’s also nice and warm outside, so it’s perfect drink to end the weekend with.
Simple to make and really tasty.
- Juice 4-5 Meyers lemons to get 1/2 cup of strained juice
- 4 cups filtered water
- 3 tablespoons raw agave
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/4 teaspoon dried ginger
Blend, chill and serve
This is really as much a tonic as anything. The cayenne and ginger are amazing at heating you up which speeds up the metabolism.
Plus it’s easy, inexpensive and you can easily blend it with some tea and make yourself a Arnold Palmer.
Til we eat again
