Ginger Lemonade

by - 8:05 AM

Ginger lemonade, I made ginger lemonade from a recipe from Melody Jones and after modifying it substantially I like it a lot!

 I had only five lemons so I made a half small batch.

 squeezed them.

Sliced the ginger real fine 

 And then chopped it up.

 I poured 1 cup of water,

Not quite a quarter cup of honey, I was being cheap and regretted it later when I tasted it. And then had to add the rest later.

1/4 cup sugar.

a cup of lemon juice

and the ginger. I boiled this for 5 minutes or something like that. I actually got a little distracted  and hurried back just i time.

Then I let it sit for 15 minutes exactly! Sure.

Strain mixture. Add to remaining cups water. And if you just don't have the patience to refrigerate and let it chill, add lots of ice and serve.

But you have to cut a few slices of lemon for garnish.
It's part of the recipe.

Adjust with more water and or honey to taste.
