Homemade Pink Lemonade with Beetroot and Ginger
A gorgeous, vibrant pink lemonade, with the earthy tones of beetroot and the zing of fresh ginger. A showstopper of a homemade lemonade, and truly delicious to boot.
If you saw my last but one post, the lemon curd and mascarpone cheesecake, you probably saw this jug of pink deliciousness sitting by its side. Did you wonder what it is? It’s homemade lemonade, but its pinkness doesn’t come from strawberries, or any berries for that matter. It comes from beetroot!
By now you know I love beetroot. So I really wanted to try it in a drink. This combo of lemon juice, sugar, beetroot and fresh ginger is just plain gorgeous, to look at and to taste. It’s super refreshing and thirst quenching, but it will also make heads turn if you put it in a pretty jug and pop it on your BBQ buffet or picnic blanket.
My goal for this weekend is to pick the last of my lemons (or some of them) and squeeze them up for lemonade. Definitely this pink one, and maybe the earl grey version from this post too.
What’s you favourite lemonade made with?
Hi! This looks so good! Can’t wait to fix it.
I do have a question. I live in the United States & for measuring we use: tsp (abreviation for teaspoons), TBSP (abreviation for tablespoons), cups, ounces, fluid ounces, pints, quarts, gallons & bushels.
I do not have a food scale to measure foods & ingredients & was wondering if you could please add the American measurements to your recipes (especially for the grams)?
Speaking of grams. What is the American measurement for this recipe?
Thank you for your recipes!
Hi Susan! Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I’m glad you like the look of this recipe. It’s quite delicious and so pretty too. I use weight measurements because I feel they are more accurate. Measuring things like chopped vegetables in cups can be tricky, as it depends largely on how each of us interpret things like “finely chopped”, “small cubes” etc. I understand however that it can be frustrating when you don’t have weighing scales. I don’t know the volume measurements for this recipe off the top of my head, but I will re-measure the first chance I get and revert with more info. Is that all right with you? Thank you so much again for visiting!
Hi, Eleni! Thank you for explaining!
I understand, how how that can make a difference. Some Amish recipes will say 1 inch in size. Like those kind.
I wouldn’t be making this until Spring arrives in March, so that would be fine. Thanks again!
