  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Lemon lime seltzer water

Method:

  1. Zest the oranges and the lime and add all of the zest to a
    medium sauce pan.
  2. Now juice the oranges, adding the juice to
    the pot. You need 2 cups fresh orange juice.
  3. Add the sugar and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Once at a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 8 to 10
    minutes, or until the syrup has reduced by about 1/3.
  4. Removethe syrup from the stove and let cool slightly. Pour the syrup
    through a fine mesh strainer into a glass jar. Discard the pulp
    and zest from the strainer and place the jar in the fridge until
    the liquid is cold, about one hour.
  5. When you’re ready for a drink, mix one part syrup and two
    parts seltzer in a glass filled with ice. Stir it up and serve with an
    orange slice if desired. Enjoy!
