Absolutely nothing says summer like an ice-cold glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade. Until recently I thought I’d sipped the best there was. But then along came this recipe, the hands-down winner. I won’t try to explain the taste—partly because it’s indescribable and partly because summer should still have a few sweet surprises.
In medium saucepan, combine ginger, sugar and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer until ginger is aromatic and mixture is syrupy, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, discard ginger and let cool.
Transfer mixture to large pitcher. Stir in lemon juice and water. Add lemon slices and refrigerate until well chilled.
To serve, fill glasses with ice. Pour over lemonade and garnish with mint sprigs.
