Even though today it’s Saturday, my alarm clock went off at 6AM. That’s at least two hours earlier than I usually prefer getting up in the weekends but I’m spending my day teaching LCHF at the other end of the country so I need to catch a train before long. So waking up this early made me need something that will stretch out my face. In my age, I tend to look like SpongeBob SquarePants when I miss sleep. You don’t want to know more than this!
So to compensate for the lack of sleep, I started my morning with a glass of this killer lemonade and today I’ll share with you. It’s completely sugar and sweetener free and it burns in your throat in the nice ginger-way. That is, if you like ginger as much as I do! If you’re used to normal sugar sweetened lemonade, you might not like this version. If you find it too brutal, feel free to add a few drops of liquid stevia to the blend.
It also tastes nice with vodka! There, I said it! Not in the morning, though! Or I wouldn’t know really. I don’t drink vodka in the morning!
