As kids, we'd be so eager for lemonade that we'd try to speed the process by melting frozen Minute Maid in boiling water, leading us to discover hot lemonade. Nowadays we go natural, thanks to this preparation.
Spiced with ginger or mint, this sunny drink is a lovely antidote to chilly weather.
Yield: serves 1
2-3 tsp. sugar or honey
Sprig of mint (optional)
Paper-thin slice of ginger
Pour lemon juice and sugar or honey to a cup of hot water, then add mint sprig of ginger (if using).
