Add zest from green and yellow lemon, ginger and pepper corns. Add mint if desired.
Leave to blend for at least 30′ and strain.

Now you have to decide on your preferred mould.

I love it in cubes… I normally use disposable freezer bags that allow me to have aromatic cubes readily available to add to a glass of water or simply to dissolve in the mouth. The addition of mint helps to contract the bitter flavour of lemons. You can crush the frozen cubes to make an aromatic ‘granita’.
