Serving Size : 3 ounces base + 3 ounces water
2-1/2 cups water
1-1/4 cups sugar or granular sugar substitute
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon or lime peel
1-1/4 cups fresh lemon or lime juice
1. In a medium saucepan, stir the water and sugar or sugar substitute over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool for 20 minutes.
2. Add the citrus peel and juice to the sugar mixture. Pour into a jar or pitcher; cover and chill. This will keep for up to three days.
