You wouldn’t think that mint and citrus would go well together. I mean, have you ever had a glass of orange juice after you brushed your teeth? Thankfully this recipe is nothing like that! The smooth and spicy sweetness of ginger syrup combined with muddled mint and freshly-squeezed lemons in a delight that must be tasted. It’s sweet, tart, spicy, and fresh all at once.
