10sprigs of fresh mint (not 10 leaves, the whole sprig, baby!)
1/2cupfresh ginger, grated
2/3cupfresh lemon juice
1/3cupfresh lime juice
2 1/2cupscold water
In a large, heat proof bowl combine mint sprigs and ginger; add boiling water and let steep 30 minutes. Strain mixture into a large glass serving pitcher, being sure not to let any large chunks of ginger or mint pass through.
Add lemon and lime juice (the mixture will pick up a slightly pink color at this point) and cold water. Stir in maple syrup. Cover and refrigerate under ready to serve. Right before serving stir in tequila. Pour over ice and serve at once! Cheers :)
Fill glasses with ice cubes. Add lemonade. Garnish with mint leaves and lemon slices and serve.
