Ginger Lemonade

I first stumbled over the Lab syrups at the Je t’aime en Chocolat show. And they blew my mind. I resisted taking them home at the time, but I had an idea for ginger lemonade using their “Infernal Ginger” syrups and finally caved in. No regrets.

Ingredients
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup Infernal Ginger syrup
4 cups water
1 1/2 cup lemon juice
2 lemons, sliced.

1. In a pot, combine the water and sugar. Turn the heat on medium-low and stir to dissolve the sugar.

2. Add the lemon zest. Bring to a boil and make sure all the sugar is dissolved. Turn off the heat and allow the lemon zest to steep for 5 minutes or so.

3. Filter out the zest.

4. Allow the simple syrup to cool. This will keep in the fridge for a good while.

5. Combine 1 cup of the simple syrup with the rest of the ingredients. I transferred it to a bottle for carrying purpose as I was bringing it to a friend’s. When ready to serve, Pour into a large pitcher with plenty of ice and the 2 sliced lemons.
