Author Notes: The perfect quencher on a hot day. Nothing beats a zesty drink to cool and refresh when the sun is shimmering outside. Anything lemon based is ideal and here you have the option to add ginger or mint to make this even more fragrant and summery. —Anna May

- 4 Lemons juiced and the peel of one
- 200 grams Sugar
