Where did spring go to? We're certainly in need of a spot of tipple with a bit of spice to warm us up so what better than a gorgeous bit of ginger fizz to warm our cockles!
dash of freshly squeezed orange juice
dash of bitter lemon
2 cups of stem ginger
2 cups sugar
4 cups water
Start off by preparing your ginger syrup, chop, peel and blend the ginger in a food processor, cook gently on a simmer with the sugar and water for an hour until the liquid has reduced. Then strain and save aside, the mix will last for 2-3 weeks kept in the fridge.
Add all of the ingredients together, using 50ml of the ginger syrup and shake well.
Strain into a glass filled with ice and garnish with an orange wedge.
Best drunk: why, straight away of course!
