 If using ginger root, cut into small pieces.  Cut the lemon rinds into paper
 thin strips and add to ginger root or powdered ginger.  Pour boiling water
 over this mixture and let steep for 5 minutes.  Strain and when perfectly
 cold, add two cups lemon juice amd simple syrup to taste.  Dilute with very
 cold water and chips of ice.  In hot weather, sprigs of mint inserted in the
 glasses add interest to this beverage.
