In a saucepan, combine maple syrup and grate ginger in it. (Make sure to grate it with its skin). Cook at high flame for 2-3 minutes by continuously whisking it. Turn it off and remove from the flame. Let it cool at room temperature.
In a blender combine water and turmeric. Blend it smooth.
Place a strainer in a bowl or a pitcher and strain maple syrup mixture first. Then strain blended turmeric through the same strainer into the same bowl. Stir it making sure that all the liquid is well strained. Discard the leftover extra fiber from the strainer.
Squeeze lemon juice into the bowl/pitcher and stir well. Taste test at this stage. You may squeeze some more lemon juice in it for a strong sour flavor. Fill ¾ of the serving glasses with crushed ice and pour the lemonade. Garnish with sliced lemons and mint leaves. Enjoy!
You may make this lemonade in a glass jar or pitcher and refrigerate for 3-4 days. When ready fill the glasses with crushed ice and pour and garnish.
We personally like the flavor of spices and it’s a bit strong in taste here. If you want softer taste then you may use ¼ inch ginger and ¼ inch turmeric. The color of the lemonade may be little lighter. But if you like the strong taste then the above measurements are absolutely delish.
This lemonade is perfectly balanced with sweet and sour taste but if you like your lemonade on a sour taste then feel free to adjust it by adding more lemon juice as per taste.
Feel free to double the quantity of this recipe and refrigerate.
The serving size and its nutritional value will vary depending on the size of your serving glass.
