Sweet N Sour Mix

Sweet N Sour Mix created by Bonnie G 2

Easy to make with only three ingredients and it is the key to making the BEST margaritas! It keeps in the refrigerator for about a week and makes two pitchers of margaritas. Or you can keep it in the freezer for a month. This is basically a lemon-lime simple syrup, combining sugar and water with lime and lemon juice. It is the key as described on the site Wine and glue. I like mine extra sour so I add an additional 1/4 cup of each - lime and lemon to the mix, but have posted as written
