Golden Honey Darjeeling Punch

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sandi From CA

Shamelessly stolen from a Celestial Seasonings insert and not yet tried by me. Cook time is chill time. IMPORTANT NOTE: It's important to use the equivalent of ginger ale commonly found in the U.S. as anything else is too strong ("gingery" as the reviewer noted). This is not ginger beer or ginger lemonade, but a product made, for instance, in the U.S. by Schweppes and Canada Dry. I didn't think to address this distinction before and I apologize to anyone who might have unsuccessfully made this recipe with the wrong ingredient.

This was very overpoweringly gingery. I could hardly taste the honey or lemon. This drink is OK for people if they are really keen on ginger, otherwise I'd give it a miss
