Ginger Cooler

Ginger is so very healthy for you, it is a commonly known fact. You can add ginger to your herbal teas and chai’s, your soups, smoothies, yoghurt drinks, salads, salsas, and so much more. Here we use it as a main ingredient in a cooling Summer Drink – an iced herbal infusion/tea.

We have other Summer coolers that you will enjoy. Watermelon Juice with Mint and Ginger, and Roasted Green Mango Drink. Also try Tulsi Khara, Mint and Lemon Verbena Iced Tea, and Balinese Ginger and Lemongrass Tea. Take the teas, make as normal, cool and serve over ice.

You can also explore all of our Summer Coolers, or all of our Drinks. Or you can leisurely browse all of our easy Early Summer Recipes.

How to stay cool on hot days

Our Summers are hot and dry. Today, as I write it is over 40 C for the third day in a row, and the forecast is for 44. That is around 111F.

But is so quiet in the mornings. There is something about hot weather that subdues noise. Have you noticed? The morning is so peaceful – but still full of joy and expectation for the day.

In those peaceful couple of early morning hours, my thoughts turn to what to drink during the day. Is there ice in the freezer? Spring water available? What flavour of drink for today?

In the evenings, it can be so still, with nere a breath of wind, lit only by the moon. Looking for coolness, we sit outside, but it is only the cooling drinks which bring relief.
