The ginger gives is a little extra zing to this cool refreshing lemon drink. Something you can’t find in the store, but you can make yourself at home.

Then sit back and enjoy a tall fresh glass of ginger lemonade around the pool or any where you want this summer. My only wish is we had a lemon tree, since lemonade is my kids favorite drink of all time.
