Suffering from pregnancy nausea? This will help ease your tummy as well provide a prenatal Vitamin C hit!
This drink is easy to make, refreshing and will help combat that early pregnancy queasiness! The lime is great for your pregnancy Vitamin C levels and the drink is so delicious you can toast your pregnancy with it!
8-10 cm of raw ginger, grated
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
3 tablespoons runny honey
½ pint sparkling mineral water
To make the syrup, place ginger and lime juice in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Cook uncovered until juice is reduced by one-quarter. This should take about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove from heat, cover pan, press the ginger lightly to extra the juices and leave to infuse for 20 minutes. Strain the liquid through a sieve and discard the ginger. Stir in honey (taste for sweetness – the limes can be quite sharp!) and place syrup in a sealed container and refrigerate until ready to use.
When you are ready just pour 2 tablespoons of the syrup in a glass and top up with sparkling water over. Stir and add a handful of ice and garnish with a slice of lime!
Good made with lemons too.
