Parsley Stem Ginger Lemonade
My idea of the best, and and most refreshing lemonade in the world. Serve this bad boy in an ice cold glass with a lemon slice on a nice day.
Simple Syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup cane sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley stems (you could sub cilantro here as well if you only have cilantro on hand a different but still tasty flavor)
  • 2 inch knob ginger peeled and sliced
To Make the lemonade:
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 3½ - 4 cups filtered water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • *Get the full written recipe here*:
  1. In a sauce pot add the cane sugar, water, parsley stems, and ginger. Place the pot on your stove over medium high heat, stirring often, until it reaches a boil and all of the sugar dissolves. Cover the pot with a lid or something airtight to keep steam from escaping. Let steep until the mixture cools down to room temp.
  2. Strain your simple syrup into a large bowl (or straight into a pitcher if serving right away). Add the lemon juice, 31/2-4 cups filtered water, and salt. Whisk until salt is totally dissolved.
  3. Serve over ice with a lemon slice and sprig of thyme.
