Welcome to water week. Huh, you say… I really don’t know what else to call it. So water week it is. But it isn’t just like, boring old water. These waters are fruit infused and super refreshing. I drink this kind of stuff all summer long so I thought I would share them with you. I was browsing through a super old cocktail book of my grandmother’s the other day and one of the recipes called for muddled lemon. And I thought to myself, now if that isn’t the easiest way ever to make lemonade, I don’t know what is. So this week I’ll be sharing 3 recipes for easy muddled fruit ades. Today I kick it off with a Muddled Ginger Limeade Recipe.
Ginger and lime are my go to flavors. All of my favorite cocktails have one or both of these included. You may remember I shared a similar recipe last year. But that one had fizzy water and was more about the flavors being really subtle. This muddled ginger limeade is about really tasting the flavors. But as always I love that these recipes can be made for your personal flavor preferences.

But since the rind and all will be in the beverage, I wanted to make sure to do what I could to remove anything grody from the skin. I used my Honest Fruit and Veg wash (I LOVE this stuff!!) and then I was good to go. Totally not sponsored, I just really love it. [Read more...]
