  • Heat 1 cup water and sugar in saucepan over medium heat until sugar melts and mixture is syrupy.

  • Pour into pitcher. Add lime juice and water. Stir, chill, and enjoy!

  • NOTES:

  • As an alternate, you can place ice into the measuring cup, then fill to the measured water line. This keeps the volume of water the same while chilling your drink quicker.

  • If you prefer citrus drinks to be slightly more tangy, reduce the sugar by 1/2 cup when heating it in the water, then add sugar to taste when the mixture is complete.
