I wasn't sure what to expect given the addition of both the cardamom and nutmeg, but what a pleasant surprise. It provides a warming note. Instead of throwing out the lemon rinds that had been squeezed, threw them into the lemonade along with the mint and the additional lemon slices. Also added a bit more lemon juice to make it a bit more lemony. Delicious and refreshing. Thank you, NE Lady, for sharing. Made it for The AmaZ'ing Race 2023 - Denmark leg and for Billboard tag game.
