  • Homemade Lime Soda
  • Supreme your limes (peel with a knife and cut into segments).
  • Set aside the lime segments. Squeeze all skin juice and leftover lime pulp juice into a small mason jar. Squeeze additional limes into the jar as well (1 or 2).
  • Grab a tall glass, plop a few lime segments into it, muddle. Add in lime juice and simple syrup (start with 1 TBS and add more later to get to your preferred level of sweetness).
  • Fill glass with ice, top with seltzer, stir, taste and adjust for sweetness and enjoy!
