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!
- 3 cups sugar
- 16 cups water (4 quarts)
- 4 cups fresh lemon juice (24 lemons)
- 12 -14 slices fresh gingerroot
- 2 lemons, sliced
- Mix sugar water and gingerroot in an 8 quart heavy pan.
- Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool 15 minutes. Remove gingerroot.
- Pour sugar mixture into a pitcher or large glass or plastic container.
- Stir in lemon juice and refrigerate at least on hour until chilled.
- Serve over ice garnished with lemon slices.
- I'm not sure of the number of servings. I've halved this and served it at tea attended by 9 and had plenty.
- Cooking time is chilling time.
Love the two together.! Thanks!
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.
Love it! Very refreshing.
