Recipe by Turtle
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I made this according to recipe. I was the only one who liked the spices, the rest of the family didn't care for it. That is not a reflection of the recipe, just personal preferance. That said, this makes a lovely lemonade concentrate that is excellent in sparkling water.
I cooked the sugar-water-spice mixture for nearly 30 minutes, and it never did reach what I would consider a thick syrup stage. Cooking as long it did, I expected the spice flavor to be completely infused into the liquid, but the end result is a very subtle spiciness. I used the 4 lemons called for, but it took 4 Tbsp of the concentrate to really get a lemonade flavor, so I'll get fewer servings. I do like having a small bottle of the concentrate in the fridge rather than a large pitcher of lemonade taking up valuable space.
