YUM! I didn't mix the whole batch but am combining as I go. It's just me & I don't want it getting watered down & flat. This is tremendously refreshing! I think I'll keep some lime syrup in the fridge for the rest of the summer....made for the Cruisin' Culinary Queens of the Culinary Quest 2014. xo Bethie

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. *NOTE: Whirl the sugar in a mini-chopper or blender until finely ground. Basically, you've just prepared "superfine" sugar at a fraction of the cost.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the sugar and water. Cook, stirring until sugar is dissolved and liquid is clear. This should take only 2-3 minutes.
  3. Transfer liquid to a pitcher and allow to cool.
  4. Once cooled, stir in lime juice. Stir well.
  5. Fill a large pitcher with ice cubes, pour in the simple syrup and the seltzer water.
  6. Stir well and serve!
