I am thinking this would also be great as the sweetener in a refreshing lemonade, spiked or not ; ) Cardamom is a pod like spice found in Indian, the Middle East, North Africa, and Scandinavia. It’s peppered through out these regions cuisines, but cardamom is a very versatile spice in so many sweet and savory dishes, and cocktails, world wide.

I used the cardamom syrup recently in this Scandinavian Picnic cocktail recently and really liked the spice it added to the green, vegetal cocktail.
