    I give this recipe 5 stars with these small changes: more honey (I used raw, and didn't measure but probably used 2-4 times as much as called for; taste as you go), and a bit of lemon juice. I used half peppermint for it's earthy depth, and half spearmint for it's vibrant freshness. The drink has a really interesting mixture of warming from the ginger and cooling from the mints, but is overall extremely cooling, accentuated by the warmth. Perfect for a hot day. Will definitely make again.
