- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
Limes are small, round, and green, while lemons are usually larger, oval-shaped, and bright yellow.
- Make a simple syrup by bringing the sugar and water to a boil, about 7 minutes. Stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and let cool.
- While the syrup is cooling, strain freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice into a resealable bottle, discarding the pulp. Pour in the cooled simple syrup. Shake and use immediately or refrigerate.
