Refreshing Summer Beverage

glass of water
glass of water


  • Juice from 3-4 limes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-2 drops lime essential oil
  • Chilled water, I prefer sparkling water or club soda


  1. Add lime juice and sugar to a small saucepan (Feel free to add a little extra water if you don't have quite a 1/2 cup of juice)
  2. Bring to a simmer until the sugar is completely dissolved, then remove from heat.
  3. Pour into glass pitcher
  4. Add lime essential oil and refrigerate until chilled
  5. Mix 2 Tbsp chilled mixture per 8 oz of sparkling water
  6. Serve chilled

You can get creative and add some basic to the drink, or even use lemon's and lemon oil instead of lime.  It is delicious and refreshing :) Great alternative to soda!
