Iced Ginger Cooler
1-2 TBSP unrefined (or brown) sugar
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
Place the ginger with about 4 cups of water in a small pot and bring to a boil. Continue to boil until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup. Lower heat to a simmer, add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Allow the concentrated liquid to cool slightly, then squeeze in the lemon juice. Pour into a pitcher filled with ice, add 2 cups of cold water to the pitcher. After the ice melts a bit, pour the liquid into ice filled glasses and garnish with a lemon wedge.
Yield: Serves 4
