Lime soda recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Club soda
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Lime wedges (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. Make simple syrup by combining equal parts water and sugar in a pan over medium heat, stirring until all the sugar is dissolved. When the edges start to simmer — the liquid should be clear, not cloudy — remove from heat. Let cool and transfer to an airtight container.
  2. Fill a glass half full with club soda, then add simple syrup and lime juice to taste. We recommend 2 Tbsp. simple syrup and 1.5 Tbsp. lime juice.
  3. Add ice if desired, garnish with lime wedges, and enjoy!
