Yield: Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 cups (24 oz.) water
  • 4-inch piece (1 inch in diameter) peeled ginger, thinly sliced
  • Zest of 2 large lemons
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup (scant 3 oz.) honey
  • 6 large mint leaves
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) fresh lemon juice
  • About 3 cups (24 oz.) chilled ginger ale
  • 6 mint sprigs for garnish

Directions

In a medium saucepan, combine water, ginger, lemon zest, sugar, honey, mint leaves, and cloves; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature. Strain into a pitcher; stir in lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 3 hours. To serve, place 3 to 4 ice cubes in tall glasses. Fill halfway with Gingerade; top with ginger ale, stirring gently. Garnish with mint sprigs.
