Cyclist's Widow

Would you be very disappointed to hear that the first cocktail of the summer was a non-alcoholic one? Well, it kinda started out that way.

1 tablespoon grated ginger
Juice 3-4 limes
4 cups of water (sparkling is good too!)
Sugar (or stevia) to taste

It’s a very refreshing drink and I made it while himself was on the eastern shore for the MS bike ride as most of my company for the weekend was under 9 years of age. It didn’t go down so well with the underage set, sticking to their boxed beverages so I added gin to it and called it a ‘cyclist’s widow’.

By the way we love us some Hendrick's gin and it's likely this was the wrong vehicle for it. It wasn't a bad drink but the gin didn't sing in it.
