    Top with sparkling water.
    Add chia seeds, a squeeze of lime, sprigs of fresh basil or fresh mint.

    OPTIONAL: add fresh berries to the glass with ginger honey mixture and muddle, or gently smash, before adding sparkling water.

Notes

Juice the ginger in a slow juicer. If you don’t have a slow juicer like, use whatever juicer you have. I recommend using the fine mesh screen or sieve that comes with your juicer to filter out the particles of ginger that will get through a larger screen/sieve. If you only have one sieve and find that there are small chunks of ginger in your juice, simply pour it through cheesecloth or a handheld fine mesh sieve—or enjoy the chunks!
