Spiced Lemonade Concentrate


"This old recipe for spiced lemonade is really delicious and refreshing. The spices really punch up the flavor and take it to the next level. To serve, pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of the concentrate into the bottom of a cup, add crushed ice, and mix with water, club soda, or ginger ale."
