Minty Strawberry Orangeade with Ginger Syrup

Strawberry drinks, with or without alcohol, need to happen this weekend especially on the Easter Sunday.  Why?  Because it’s spring; it’s strawberries season; and making strawberry drinks will make you feel like an expert entertainer of the day.  Just look at the drink I made.  Doesn’t it make you want to take a sip, especially when it’s a hot sunny day?   Alternatively, you can use sparkling water or soda instead of water to make it bubbly refresher for both kids and adults.  But those who cares for something wilder to sip, add some tequila and more lime juice for awesome strawberry mojito! 

Did I ever mentioned that I can’t get enough of strawberry from the last post?    Well then, I have nothing else to say.  

What you need:
5 cups filtered water
1 cup simple ginger syrup (make simple syrup and add 5-6 thinly sliced of ginger into the syrup and left it overnight in the refrigerator) – adjust the sweetness as you preferred
1 cup fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 small lemon (I used Myer lemon) juice
1 cup fresh strawberry sliced
1 handful mint leaves
1 medium orange sliced

1. Stir water, syrup, and orange juice in a big pitcher
2. Use a wooden spoon gently crush the mint leaves with lemon juice and stir in the pitcher
3. Add fresh strawberry and orange slices in the pitcher

4. Chill at least an hour before serving over ice
