Lemony lemon for the summer thirst

I was at a friends place last week when she served me this drink which i loved till the last drop. I fell so much in love with it that i had to ask for the recipe. I thought i needed a little more of ginger so i just added a little than the usual recipe asks for. Looks like this drink is specially made in summer to help combat dehydration. Sure it refreshes our body in a jiffy

This recipe makes a lemony syrup that can be refrigerated for quite some time. When serving add required amount of water, ice cubes, mint and give it a good stir
