Hot Spiced Ginger Lemonade - Dinner With Julie

Hot Spiced Ginger Lemonade


December 26, 2008

Try this with orange juice instead of lemonade, or a combination of the two. To make a simple lemonade syrup, combine equal parts lemonade and sugar in a saucepan; bring to a simmer to dissolve the sugar and cool. Add to water to taste; about two tablespoons of syrup per cup of cold or hot water.


2 L lemonade (preferably not pink)

1 cinnamon stick

5 whole cloves

5 whole allspice berries

a 2" chunk of peeled fresh ginger, coarsely grated or sliced


1In a large saucepan combine the lemonade, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and ginger and bring to a simmer; cook for about 10 minutes. Strain into a glass pitcher, insulated carafe or Thermos and serve warm. Serves 8.
