Very refreshing and wonderful for warm summer days.

Very tasty lemonade; however, I had to use lemon zest in place of the lemon grass because it is not available locally. The steeped zest is a bit bitter, which requires more sugar (Splenda). Not sure if lemongrass would have a different outcome. Nice, different, interesting flavor -- which would mix well with Vodka or Tequila.
