"I love the gingery-zing, and the mint flavour that this delicious lemonade has. Very refreshing. 40 minutes passive cooking time is actually steeping time."

    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 reduced the ginger substantially to about 2 1/2 tablespoons. Fresh mint from our garden! The mixture was strained twice to remove any residual ginger peel. Perfect beverage for a 95º+ summer day. Thanks, Ev'! Prepared for CQ 2014.

    Very good lemonade! This recipe combined 3 ingredients I love: honey, mint and ginger.<br/>This is a summer hit, but I'm sure it will be delicious hot (reheating it!) in winter too.

    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!
