Fantastic, I say - Thank You for a refreshing, delicious and different treat! Simply Lovely!



I was really looking forward to this recipe, but something about the flavor is just not right. I attempted to fix it, to no avail, and can't say it's worth the time to make this lemonade. The cinnamon is just too overpowering for a hot lemon drink, and it made the fresh lemon juice I used taste like some concentrate.



I used so many substitutions, this might be considered a different recipe but it was very good. I had no honey, so I used pure maple syrup. I had no zest so I omitted it and put in extra lemongrass to compensate. Then I ran out of lemon juice halfway through and had to use lime juice instead. I still think it tastes mostly the way it was meant to - not like lemonade but some of the best home brewed tea with a very zesty lemony flavor. Hot or cold, it was perfect
