Charles Hunter III's Ginger-Berry Lemonade

Ginger-Berry Lemonade

byCharles Hunter III
Total 1 hour and 35 minutes (includes cooling time)
Active 10 mins
Makes 10 servings
Ingredients
  • 10 cups filtered water
  • 2 pints blackberries
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • One 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Juice of 1 lemon, plus lemon half-moons or wedges for garnish
  • Ginger beer, to serve
  • Bourbon, whiskey, or vodka, for serving (optional)
  • Thyme sprigs, for garnish
    Directions
    1. In a large stockpot over medium heat, add the filtered water, blackberries, raspberries, honey, ginger, and salt. Bring to a boil and simmer until the berries have burst and released their juices, 20 to 25 minutes.
    2. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve, add the lemon juice, and transfer to a fridge-safe vessel. Allow to cool completely.
    3. To serve, add ice to lowball glasses and pour over the ginger berry juice to about two-thirds up the glass. Top with some ginger beer and alcohol (if using). Garnish with lemon half-moons or wedges and thyme sprigs.
