  1. I am a little confused. the recipe says to combine the ginger and lemon in blender and put it in the pot. But later it says to add the lemon. How much sweetener do you use and how much water? I have never made it before, and if the recipe doesn't say, then I don't know how much to add.

    1. I see where you are confused, I will update the recipe language. You first add the water and sugar to the pot. Then, you add the lemon-ginger mixture from the blender.
