Lemon-Ginger Slush

Reminiscent of frozen lemonade, but for grownups. This can also be mixed with tequila for an afternoon happy hour — we won't tell. Prep tip: To make ginger juice, grate fresh ginger, skin and all, onto a plate, gather into a mound, then squeeze with fingertips to extract juice. For 1 tablespoon juice, you'll need about 3 inches fresh ginger. Or use bottled ginger juice, available in natural foods stores.

Directions
  1. In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar and bring to a boil. Cook until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice, zest, and ginger juice. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, until completely cold.
  2. Pour mixture into a cold ice-cream maker and freeze about 20 minutes. Add crystallized ginger and continue freezing 10 more minutes, until slushy. Serve, garnished with mint. (If making ahead, transfer to a freezer-safe container.)
