Ingredients
  • 4 unwaxed lemons
  • 5cm piece of root ginger, peeled and sliced thinly
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 10g Truvia Calorie-Free Sweetener
  • 1.6 litre sparkling water
  • Ice, to serve
Method
  • Use a vegetable peeler to cut all the zest off the lemons - try not to peel away any of the pith. Cut the lemons in half and use a lemon juicer to squeeze them. Discard the seeds.

  • Put into a saucepan with the strips of zest, sugar, ginger slices and 750ml cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Leave to cool, then chill, for at least 1 hour.

  • Strain through a sieve into a large jug. To serve, dilute with the sparkling water. Add ice and lemon slices.
