After 10-15 mts, strain the liquid and cool. Discard mint and ginger. 3. Extract juice from 9-10 limes or approx 1 cup of lime juice. Strain and discard the seeds. Keep aside. 4. Take a pitcher and add 8-9 cups of cold water, add the extracted lime juice, cooled sugar syrup and ginger-mint infusion and combine. Add 1/4 cup of fresh mint leaves and salt to taste and combine. Adjust the sweetness by adding more sugar syrup and if it needs to be more tart, add more lime juice. 5. Pour into glasses and serve with ice. For those who want to avoid sugar, replace sugar syrup with a cup of honey or any sweetener of your choice. A pinch of roasted cumin powder or chaat masala powder can be added to each glass of lemonade for added flavor. Prep time: 15 min Cook time: 10 min Yield: 8 Main Ingredients: lime mint ginger a
