“This ginger limeade is so refreshing. It will be especially helpful to anyone trying to transition off of caffeinated energy drinks. The subtle heat of fresh ginger juice makes this drink one you will come back to time and time again.”

Notes & Tips
Grating the ginger with a fine toothed grater is the best way to get the ginger pulp and juice.
This recipe tastes just as good as a pure limeade without the ginger. Either way you'll absolutely crave more of it
You can also buy a bottle of pure lime juice if your don't want to squeeze the limes by hand. However, read the ingredients before purchasing to make sure there are no additives or preservatives.
