Lime Ginger Fizz

Lime Fizz

My kids chris­tened this drink “Sploosh”, I think just because it’s fun to say, and not that it resem­bles at all the bot­tled con­coc­tion in Louis Sachar’s book ‘Holes’.  We make it for any occa­sion, or no occa­sion at all–it’s just YUM! The gin­ger syrup driz­zled in at the end is a recent addi­tion and it com­ple­ments the lime per­fectly! Make sure you freeze it in a non-reactive pan. Glass is best.

Serves 12 gen­er­ously.

Lime Gin­ger Fizz

1–12 ounce con­tainer frozen limeade

4 cups gran­u­lated sugar

8 cups water

Club soda or pellegrino

Gin­ger syrup

Limes for gar­nish and extra fla­vor if desired

Lime Fizz

Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan just until dis­solved.  Add frozen (or thaw it first–doesn’t really mat­ter!) limeaid and mix well. Pour into non-reactive con­tain­ers and freeze sev­eral hours. Trans­fer from freezer to fridge 30 min­utes or so before serv­ing to slightly soften. Either mix entire amount in a large punch powl with club soda, or scoop indi­vid­u­ally into glasses and add club soda to taste. Driz­zle desired amount of gin­ger syrup onto mixed drink, gar­nish and serve
