    This is my new favorite beverage. As the other review said, it really is not a sweet lemonade like most of us are used to, so don't expect that. It is very spicy and gingery and not very sweet at all. I made a simple syrup out of the sugar and a little water so it would blend better. The spices settle at the bottom so you might want to strain them out before serving. I have had this cold and hot and it is wonderful either way. I think it is more healthy than a lot of other things you could drink.

    I made this recipe just like Bal wrote it. We thought it was very refreshing and somewhat unusual tasting. I would not call it "lemonade" when serving it to friends as I believe it sets an expectation for what it will taste like. And it tastes quite different from lemonade with a litle unusual flavor to it. It definitely grows on you and I would make it again. It is relatively easy to make.
