Last week I knew nothing about this poolside sipper. In fact, had I not begun a conversation with the Four Seasons Maldives on twitter, @FSMaldives), I would not be sharing it with you today. Lomi Lomi is snowy and tropical, sweet and tart, spicy and refreshing. Since it only contains three ingredients, the drink comes together very quickly.

Instructions
Make the ginger juice
  1. Combine 1 cup peeled & grated ginger, with 4 cups boiling water. Strain. Alternatively you can boil the ginger until it reaches desired strength.You can also run fresh ginger through a juicer, if you have one, but the result is much more potent, so you won’t need as much in the recipe.Ginger juice keeps for at least a week in the fridge – this makes more than you’ll need for the recipe.
For the lomi lomi
  1. Mix the honey into the juices first, before adding the ice or the honey will harden. Finally, blend with lots of ice (to make like a slushy).
Recipe Notes

Note: here’s the exact recipe the hotel tweeted me (which I modified a little bit):  “250g chopped ginger blend with 1 litre water, strain. Add 20ml ginger juice, 30ml lime & 60ml honey, lots of ice, to taste.”
