Experiment with replacing some or all of the lemons with other citrus.
If you've never tried this, it is really interesting and delicious. Either boil half a vanilla bean with the syrup or add a slash of vanilla extract to the cooled mix.
Steep a few sprigs of rosemary in the hot syrup instead of mint.
