Refreshing summer drink, good for tea time, too! From the Betty Crocker website several years ago. Take advantage of lemons on sale and enjoy a sip on a spring afternoon!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sugar water and gingerroot in an 8 quart heavy pan.
  2. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool 15 minutes. Remove gingerroot.
  3. Pour sugar mixture into a pitcher or large glass or plastic container.
  4. Stir in lemon juice and refrigerate at least on hour until chilled.
  5. Serve over ice garnished with lemon slices.
  6. I'm not sure of the number of servings. I've halved this and served it at tea attended by 9 and had plenty.
  7. Cooking time is chilling time.

This is really great, with just the right amount of ginger-zing! I only made half the recipe and used Splenda for the sugar (only 1 cup for half recipe). We were RV'ing in the hot part of the state, and this really hit the spot! Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009.
