Luscious Limeade with a Twist of Ginger
A traditional summer beverage, limeade invokes images of lying in a hammock on a sunny day under the shade of a tree. This recipe captures the most beneficial aspects of lemonade by squeezing the juice fresh. Limes also support balanced digestion, so this tonic is ideal for any gurgly sounds in the stomach. The subtle heat of the fresh ginger makes this mocktail one you’ll come back to time and time again.

Stir in the cooled coconut sugar water and the fresh mint leaves.
