Lemonade


Summer’s already start here, Thailand is bound to be very hot at this time but this year its still raining.
Over the next few posts I intend to highlight many of my favorite summer special drinks, starting with the always in demand – lemonade. Lemonade is popular around the world for many reasons.
Daily consumption of four ounces of lemon juice per day, when mixed with two liters of water, has been shown to reduce the rate of stone formation in people susceptible to kidney stones. Lemons contain the highest concentration of citrate of any fruit, and this weak acid has been shown to inhibit stone formation. Both mint and ginger are known to sooth the digestive track and promote digestion. They are used as natural remedies to combat nausea, indigestion, heart burn and a whole host of other discomforts.My mother makes this recipe on every summer and it is traditional Indian lemonade. You’ll find that the mint and ginger flavors makes this drink really refreshing.
