Are you a momologie subscriber yet? Well what are you waiting for! They've got great style tips, fashion finds and entertaining ideas for modern moms. This month I'm trying out one of their recipes for Ginger Lemonade-we love it for all the ladies who are expecting this summer. No need to miss out on a fancy cocktail--the only thing not included is alcohol. How fresh is that!
Sparkling Ginger Limeade (serves 4)
4 Cups Sparkling Water
1/2 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice (about 5-6 limes)
1/2 Cup Superfine Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Ginger, finely grated/minced (or jarred minced ginger if you don'??t have fresh)
In a pitcher, whisk together all the ingredients until the sugar dissolves. Add lime slices for garnish. Serve over ice.
* Use a lime or lemon press to quickly squeeze every drop of juice out of a lime. This is one kitchen doodad that'??ll get tons of use!
* Spike It: Use this recipe as the base for a cocktail by replacing the sparkling water with eight ounces of gin (makes 4 drinks). For an added touch, run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass and dip it in sugar.
* Ginger keeps for a long time in the freezer. Peel whatever fresh ginger is left and then freeze in a freezer bag or container. It'??s also very easy to grate when it'??s frozen.
