RECIPE: GINGER-MINT TEQUILA LEMONADE

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ginger, chopped

    Preparation

    1. COMBINE the water, sugar, and ginger in a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer until the sugar has melted.

    2. REMOVE the pan from the heat, add 16 mint leaves, cover, and let the leaves steep for 10 minutes. Using a fine strainer, strain the mixture into a glass container and refrigerate until well-chilled.

    3. ADD the tequila, ice, sugar mixture, lemon juice, remaining mint leaves, and lemon slices into a large pitcher. Stir to combine, then pour the lemonade into glasses.
