Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Oh, my!!! That ginger makes all the difference in the world, and I loved it! I didn't use teabags, instead using the whole dried flowers that they sell by the pound at the Hispanic grocery. I tried it exactly as written and it was very good. Later, I added a teeny shot of dark rum, and it was a perfect drink for lounging around the pool on a 90+ degree day!
