Homemade Sour Mix

Makes approx. 2 1/2 cups



1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup water

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (3-4 lemons)

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5-6 limes)



In a small saucepan, bring the sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 7 minutes. Stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and let cool completely.


While the simple syrup is cooling, strain freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice into a resealable bottle or jar, discarding the pulp and seeds. Pour in the cooled simple syrup. Shake and use immediately or refrigerate.
