Sparkling Mexican Limeade (Limonada)

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 7 limes)
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Three 750 ml bottles or two 1-quart bottles sparkling mineral water or seltzer, chilled
  • Lime slices, optional

Makes about 2 quarts (eight 8-ounce servings)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Stir the lime juice, sugar, vanilla and ½ cup water together in a large pitcher until the sugar is dissolved. Chill thoroughly. The syrup may be made up to several hours before serving.
Just before serving, pour the sparkling water into the syrup and serve, with ice and a lime slice tucked into each glass if you like.
