Ginger lime tea is my GO-TO drink. I love when there is a fresh pitcher made in my fridge, I know I’m giving my body something good. In addition to it being refreshingly satisfying, it also serves many health benefits. Feeling constipated? Ginger lime tea is the answer. Nauseous or morning sickness? Ginger lime tea will fix that. Got a bad cough or cold? Ginger lime tea will knock it out of your system. High cholesterol a problem? Ginger lime tea will lower it. Got an upset stomach? Ginger lime tea will settle it out in no time. It’s the miracle tea. It really is. Eating something greasy and want a drink that will cut through the unctuous bits? Ginger lime tea is the best. I can’t shout it out any louder. I don’t know why it’s not being served in every household? You want to impress your friends with something different? Try ginger lime tea, it’s so right. There’s nothing better for you and it’s sweet tangy spice makes any meal more memorable. It cleanses your palate and quenches your thirst at the same time. It could be enjoyed warm or cold over ice. I don’t know if you noticed, but I’m way into ginger lime tea. Once you try it, you will be too.
Ginger Lime Tea Ingredients:
1 – large piece of fresh ginger (the size of your hand or slightly bigger)
9 – cups water
1 1/2 – cups fresh lime juice (around 20 limes)
12 – ounces honey
With the side of a spoon, peel/scrape ginger clean.
Once ginger is completely peeled, cut ginger into 1/2 inch pieces.
In a pot over a medium high flame, add chopped ginger and water.
Bring to a rolling boil, and allow to boil for 3 minutes. Then take off flame and set to the side.
Now to juice the limes. Cut limes in half and extract all juice from lime into a bowl. Either by hand or with a citrus press.
In a 12 cup pitcher, add honey and fresh lime juice.
Then take a rubber spatula and stir together well. Until honey and lime become one.
Last step. Pour ginger water into the pitcher to meet up with the honey lime mixture. Turns out they really like eachother. 🙂 Then give it a good swirl! It will be potent and strong.
