Lemon Ginger Brew

Want a sugar-free beverage that's spicy and refreshing? Try this Lemon Ginger Brew. So delicious! | ibakeheshoots.comSeptember is coming to an end…. and it’s still 90+ degrees here. C’mon, sun…give a sista a break! Still, I try to counteract the heat with easy drinks like the calimocho or basil beerade, but it’s not enough. Seriously, I’m freaking melting over heah <in my best mob voice>!

Now, I have many alcohol-fueled cocktails in my arsenal, but sometimes I want something that’s alcohol-free and refreshing without reaching for a $2/sugar-heavy soda (no offense Coke: I will always love you).

Want a sugar-free beverage that's spicy and refreshing? Try this Lemon Ginger Brew. So delicious! | ibakeheshoots.comI present to you…Lemon Ginger Brew. It’s spicy and refreshing at the same time. Yeah, that’s a thing. It’s super versatile; I’ve made it with lemon and honey and lime and maple syrup. Both delicious. You can drink it straight (if you have a tongue of steel) or you can use it as a mixer. I like to mix mine with club soda or water. Either way, it makes for a very satisfying sugar-free elixir. Drink up!
