This drink has a strong funny gingery and sour flavour some people especially cannot even take. If you desire a sweeter drink, have a bite of your richberry's miracle berry while you are preparing. Try it!
3 cups water
2 heaping cups fresh strawberries, hulled
1-1/2 tablespoons peeled and roughly chopped fresh ginger
1-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice
Pour strawberry liquid into pitcher; add lemon juice. Stir. Serve over ice; refrigerate any leftovers.
Note: this makes a lemonade that is on the tart side.
Mocktail (non-alcoholic): If you wish to have a delicious non-alcoholic version, please feel free to take the alcohol out and follow the same procedure.
Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
