Limonada and Naranjada con Soda

If you want to kick these up a notch, add 1-2 oz vodka. Adapted from MexicoInMyKitchen.com

Syrup (refrigerate the extra for another day)

  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 c water

Lime or Lemon Flavor

  • 1/2 c ice cubes
  • 2 T syrup
  • 2 T lime juice (or lemon juice)
  • 1/2 c sparkling mineral water or club soda
  • 1/2 of a thin slice of lemon or lime to top it off (optional)

Orange Flavor

  • 1/2 c ice cubes
  • 2 T syrup
  • 1/4 c freshly-squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 c of sparkling mineral water or club soda
  • mint leaf or two (optional)
First, to make the syrup, place the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Place over medium-high heat and stir until it dissolves. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to simmer for 5 minutes to form a very uniform syrup. Remove from heat and let it cool.
Once the syrup has cooled, place the ice in the glasses, pour the juice (either lime/lemon or orange), then add 2 tablespoons of syrup.  Stir.
Pour the mineral water into it, stir again, add the mint leaf or citrus slice on top, and serve.
