Summer is in full swing, which means long hot days outside on the lake and behind the boat! : )
Staying hydrated is super important for optimal performance and overall good health. While drinking eight glasses a day is great, it can also get incredibly boring.
I am lucky that I never really liked pop / soda growing up, so I never had to stop a crazy diet coke addiction! lol. Sometimes drinking glasses and glasses of water can get old. I discovered this drink a few months ago when I was sick and tired of just drinking water. I generally keep my liquid calories to my morning juice, latte, and wine and this recipe caught my eye. Homemade ginger ale! I LOVE ginger, so learning how to make homemade ginger ale was a no-brainer, I had to try it. Turns out it's not only delicious, it's healthy too!
This is where you can find me over the weekend. : )
Ginger - Spritzer
1/2 honeydew melon (thickly sliced and remove peel)
1/2 -1-inch piece of fresh ginger (depending on how spicy you want it)
1 pear, halved
Small handful of ice (optional)
1/2 cup sparkling mineral water, chilled
Feed melon, ginger, and then pear through juicer.
Fill glass halfway with ice, pour in the juice.
Add the sparkling mineral water and enjoy!
