Ginger Lemonade

Things have been a little quite around here, it feels like forever since my last post.

I was on vacation for a few glorious weeks – eating good food, carousing with loved ones, marveling at great sites and architecture, and exploring places I’d never been.

I’ve felt a little blue since returning home; consequently, this cloud of melancholy I can’t seem to shake, coupled with jetlag, has me feeling a little under the weather.
It’s gotten much colder in the few weeks that I’ve been away, so I spent the last weekend mostly in bed, with a stuffy nose and a sad heart.

I’m recuperating and hydrating, through bouts of fitful sleep and losing myself in Shondaland, my mom checks up on me, occasionally with a glass of ginger lemonade in hand. “Hydrate, hydrate… you need to stay hydrated” She says.

We’ve been making this lemonade throughout the summer; we can’t seem to get enough of it, bold and refreshing… it’s a cross between lemonade and ginger beer – and lately we’ve been adding cloves to our lemonade, a tip we picked up from B. over at Recipes from a Pantry, who does it with her ginger beer.

The heat from the ginger and cloves warms my sore tired throat and clears my sinuses, it’s calming, and the lemons deliver an invigorating kick and my much needed vitamin C.

The weather has been crisp and dry, sunny and carrying hints of the summer past, which makes this drink still perfect for the season.

I’m sure a few more sips of this lemonade, and some much needed rest will get me back to my old self in no time.
