Last week, I shared with y’all details from the Minute Maid Lights brunch in Toronto. I’m ecstatic that there are so many cocktail and mocktail lovers among us! And as promised, I’m back today to share the recipe for Nadine Hughes’ Lemon Ginger Punch, which will, by all accounts, change your life. Love lemonade? Love the sharp, spicy bite of ginger? This drink is for YOU.
half English Cucumber, cut into thin rounds
Small handful of fresh mint leaves
1 lemon, cut into thin rounds
7 cups Minute Maid Light Lemonade
2-3 cups Ginger Beer or Ginger Ale
This recipe is so simple to follow, you’ll find yourself making the punch over and over again. (Clearly, I speak from experience.) You can also add your own touches, like substituting basil for mint, or adding fresh raspberries.
First, in a large pitcher or punch bowl, steep the cucumber, mint and lemon rounds in Minute Maid Light Lemonade. This can be done up to 24 hours in advance, as long as the mixture is refrigerated. When you’re ready to serve the punch, add the ginger beer or ginger ale (slowly!) and crushed ice to taste. Although I love the pungent bite of ginger beer, to please a variety of palettes, I normally serve this punch with ginger ale instead. Serves 6.
Et voila! A crisp, refreshing punch that is light-tasting and light on the waistline! Minute Maid Light Lemonade is made with real lemons, is an excellent source of Vitamin C and has 65% fewer calories than their regular lemonade. It’s the goodness of Minute Maid, now in a delicious Light version. Do give it a try at your next brunch or party, and let me know how much you love it.
