•1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
•1/8 teaspoon anise
•1/8 teaspoon ground fenugreek
•3 or 4 leaves cinnamon basil
•2 large cans frozen lemonade concentrate
•Water or seltzer

1. Place the ginger, water, and honey in a nonreactive saucepan.

2. Bring the mixture to a boil, then cover and simmer on low heat for 25 minutes.
