Honey, fresh ginger and lemons were meant for each other and this is the ultimate way to show them off together. Try making it with lavender honey.

Honey, fresh ginger and lemons were meant for each other and this is the ultimate way to show them off together. Try making it with lavender honey.

1 litre/32fl oz water
360ml/12fl oz honey
200g/7oz sugar
115g/4oz finely chopped
fresh ginger
720ml/24fl oz freshly squeezed lemon juice

Bring half the water plus the honey, sugar and ginger to a boil in a pan. Allow to simmer for a couple of minutes until the sugar and honey are dissolved. Remove from the heat. Leave to stand for 20 to 30 minutes. Strain and combine with the lemon juice in a large pitcher. Let cool completely. Add the remaining water. The lemonade should be tart-sweet at this point. Chill. Transport to a Thermos and serve in a pitcher over lots of ice at the picnic, taking into consideration that some of the ice will melt and dilute the lemonade.
