3 cups water
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 cup fresh ginger, peeled and minced very fine
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (lemon powder is okay but fresh is better)
Put 1 cup of water, honey, sugar and ginger in a heavy medium saucepan and bring to a boil. stirring until the sugar dissolves. Cool, then strain syrup into a pitcher. Mix in lemon juice and remaining 2 cups water. Fill the pitcher with ice and let stand for a few minutes to chill (in the refrigerator is best to prevent over diluting).
Serve in tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish with lemon slices if desired.
