Lime Ginger Squash(Syrup)

Ingredients:
1- 1.25 cups fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 cup of crushed Ginger
8 cups Sugar
1.5 - 2 cups Water

Recipe:
Cut the lemons, remove the seeds, squeeze and collect the fresh lemon juice in a vessel.
Crush the ginger in a mixer and keep it aside.

Put sugar, water in a vessel, mix them well and bring it to boil.

Add the crushed ginger, bring it to boil and prepare the sugar syrup. (Carefully dip the tip of your index finger into the syrup, touch your finger and thumb together and slowly tease apart. If a thread is formed between your finger and thumb the syrup is done.)

Add the lemon juice and mix well and switch off the flame.

Strain this syrup to get rid of the pulp ingredients as shown in the picture below.

Once it is cooled to room temperature, store it in an airtight container/bottles. This can be preserved for more than 6 months in refrigerator.

To prepare the juice, add lime ginger squash and water in 1:4 ratio and mix well. Put ice cubes (if required) and serve.
