- 1 1/2 cup lime juice (about 6 Persian limes)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 cups water
- Several sprigs of fresh mint
Juice all your limes. This is a little time consuming.
In a small saucepan bring 1 cup of the water to a boil, slowly add the sugar.
Once the sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and let cool.
Mix the sugar water, the rest of your water, and the lime juice together.
Taste it for the sweet/sour balance. If it's too sweet, add a little more water.
Serve chilled with mint leaves.
