i've been really into making my own flavored syrups for home made sodas and etc, today i made the BEST lemon-lime syrup today, it tastes way better than sierra mist or 7-up etc.
1 C water
1 C sugar
zest + juice of 1 lemon
zest + juice of 1 lime
heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 min. cool, store in the refrigerator.
2-3 Tbsp in a tall glass w/ soda water and ice = YUM!
