Ginger Lemonade

Lemonade… A classic summer drink, isn’t it??!!! But as winter turns to spring, my tastebuds reflected the change of season ;) Spring is almost here… I should start preparing to welcome a season of berries, picnics & lots of food!!! Well, it’s a perfect season of filling refreshing thirst quenchers in glasses… And before I get some fresh spring air, I thought of making a flavored lemonade… Silly, simple flavor this time – Ginger!!! I had some kaffir lime leaves in stock so added them to bring a twist in the taste :)

I’m surely going to get myself lost in the magic of this spring season… Too many things in plan :) Food-festivals, outdoor activities, berry-cherry picking and much more… Let me pen down everything while sipping on this delightful “Ginger Lemonade”!!!
