It’s still very hot in Luxembourg and warm weather means for certain: more time for barbecues, long evenings and cravings for refreshing drinks. When life gives you lemons, go get some fresh ginger and mint and make lemonade. This is a super easy recipe to make your own lemon syrup.


  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 200 g white sugar
  • 200 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 500 ml water
  • decoration: a few lemon and orange slices, a few leaves of mint and rosemary
  • still or sparkling water


  • In a saucepan, combine ginger powder, sugar and water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar.
  • Add lemon juice and allow to cool to room temperature. Cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  • This syrup can be mixed with 1 – 1,5 litre water. To prepare lemonade combine 1/5 syrup with water in a glass and stir well.
