Cut slices into quarters and cut one slit into each quarter; set quarters aside for garnish. Juice remaining lemons to measure about 1/3 cup juice using Juicer.
    2. Finely mince gingerroot using Food Chopper. Combine lemon zest, juice, ginger and sugar in Small Batter Bowl; cover loosely with lid. Microwave on HIGH 2-3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved.
    3. Place lemonade concentrate into Quick-Stir® Pitcher. Pour ginger mixture through Strainer into pitcher; discard ginger. Add club soda and vodka, if desired. Place lid onto pitcher and plunge gently.
