Sparkling Limeade

Nobody seems to make limeade quite as good as the kind sold indoors at the State Farmer’s Market, but this less sugary version comes a close second.

Sparkling Limeade


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, (from about 8 limes)
  • 1 quart seltzer water
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime slices, for garnish (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water and sugar. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar has dissolved and mixture is clear, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a pitcher; cool. To serve, stir together sugar-water mixture, lime juice, and seltzer water. Pour over ice, and garnish with lime slices, if desired.
