Personal Notes:
Mae-Mae gave me this recipe which was given to her by her dear friend, ginger Daniel. I love it and drink way too much when it's hot outside, which is about 10 months out of the year in Texas! Since I drink a lot of it, I triple the recipe -- 2 cups just doesn't cut it.

Tip: Don't pay too much for lemon drops. Some stores carry small bags for $4, while other stores carry large bags for $1. It pays to shop around!
