Homemade Lemon Lime Soda

Yum

 
My mother never really bought sodas for us when we were kids.  Since I try to do the same with my kids, I wanted to make a homemade "healthier" version of lemon lime soda for them.  

It was so easy (the hardest part was squeezing out all the juice).  My homemade lemon lime soda turned out fantastic and my family loved.   I know it's still spring, but summer will be here before we know it.  I will definitely be serving a lot of this refreshing drink on those long hot days. 


 Ingredients:
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1-2 liters club soda (carbonated water)
lemon and lime slices to garnish

Add choice of sweeteners to taste
  • Simple Syrup -1 cup sugar dissolved in 1 cup of water heated on the stove. (see recipe below for ginger-mint simple syrup)
or
  • Agave or Splenda to taste



  Ginger-Mint Simple Syrup:
 To make 1 batch:
Boil 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1 inch of sliced ginger.  Bring to a boil for 2-3.  Turn stove off and add 4-5 mint leaves.  Allow to steep and cool. Strain ginger and mint before using.

  4. I think I will try this with lemongrass simple syrup since I have some in the refrigerator. It's nice to drink something other than water. Thank you for the recipe.
