Ingredients

Infused Maple Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • ¾ cup maple syrup or agave or honey
  • 8 sprigs lemon thyme or regular thyme, divided
  • 1 tablespoon ginger grated (Notes)

Lemonade

  • 4 cups water
  • ¾ cup lemon juice (from about 6 medium lemons)
  • 4 sprigs lemon thyme
  • Ginger slices for extra steeping (Notes)
  • Thyme for extra steeping and garnish

Instructions

  • First make the infused maple syrup: Combine water and maple syrup to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add ginger and sprigs thyme, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low heat, cover and simmer for about 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature for 25 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until further use.
  • In a large pitcher, add lemon juice and dilute it with water. Add ⅔ cup of the simple syrup mixture and reserve for later use.
  • Add the ginger slices, some lemon rinds, and lemon thyme to steep if desired. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours. Serve over ice with garnishes.

Notes

For a lighter ginger flavor, add 6 ¼-inch sliced ginger. In this case, you might need ginger slices for extra steeping in the lemonade.
