|Add Lemon/Lime or both|
Limeade with Ginger & Basil
1-2 Lime juice (depending on how intense you like your lime)
1-2 teaspoon lime zest
4 cups water (boiled in the morning and allowed to come to room temp.)
2 tsp raw sugar, honey or agave (more to taste)
2 inches of fresh ginger
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
Peel and chunk ginger. Zest 1 -2 teaspoons lime zest. Juice limes.
Add the blended juice to 3 cups water. Garnish with lime and basil leaves.
*I used 1 lime and 2 lemon. I usually keep adding and tasting until my tongue is happy. Our family prefers a tangy drink but, you could certainly sweeten it more.
|Cooling & Refreshing for a hot summer day!|
High Pitta -reduce/remove Basil and add Cilantro or mint - or a combination (basil is heating & Cilantro and mint are cooling)
High Kapha - stick with honey
Rim your class with a little pink salt and you'll have all 6 taste!
Blessings to all!
