Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Evelyn. I enjoyed this refreshing lemonade treat. It was tart tangy, spicy and slightly sweet. I really like lemon, honey, ginger and mint so this seemed tailor made for me. I used spearmint in the lemonade it worked great. Made for Culinary Quest - 2014 - Suitcase Gourmets.
I really liked this! I'm glad I didn't overdo the lemon juice, because the ginger gave a strong flavor that I liked a lot. Summer ginger ades and ales are just fine with me! I have plenty of garden mint, and it tasted great with this thirst quencher! Ginger is very, very good for your health! I may try to simmer the ginger first, cool it, then add the honey and mint next time!
