    DrGaellon's Note:

    A sweet-and-slightly-sour mint drink, this can be traced back to 16th century Persia. Other herbs, like thyme, lavender or rosemary may be substituted for different flavors.

      1. Recipe is idiot proof. Measurements don't have to be exact
      2. I like a lot of ginger, so I steep ginger tea bags in the water then proceed.
      3. Using mint tea bag instead of fresh mint is soooo convenient.
      4. I like 4 parts water to 1 part syrup is my favorite.
      5. I also use seltzer water.
      6. LOVE THIS!!!!

      I have also made this and quite enjoyed it with apple cider vinegar without the mint. Very freshing drink for the summer.

      Actually, it's pre-16th century, and has been referenced to the 13th century... But oooh, it's wonderful!
