sweet and sour cocktail mix recipe
Recipe type: drink
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 3 cups water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 2 cups lime juice
  1. Mix water and sugar over medium heat to dissolve. Bring to boil, then cool to room temperature.
  2. Mix cooled simple syrup with lemon and lime juices. (I strained my freshly squeezed juices before adding to the simple syrup.) Chill until cold.
  3. Keeps for a week in the fridge. Prep time includes chilling time.
This makes a lot of extra. I like to use it mixed in cocktails or as a base for a fizzy lemonade when mixed with seltzer.
