This sweet-tart beverage is refreshing on a hot day. Feel free to adjust the sugar to suit your taste. Tote the limeade in a thermos so it stays cold.
Combine 1/4 cup water, sugar, ginger, rind, and mint leaves in a blender, and process until well blended. Cover; chill for 2 hours.
Add remaining 5 3/4 cups water and juice; stir to combine. Garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
