Summer recipes with Daisy Martinez

Sparkling Mexican Limeade


Whether on the high plains of central Mexico in summer or in your own backyard, nothing beats this spritzy, tart, lightly sweet drink for flat-out, thirst-quenching goodness.

Makes about 2 quarts (eight 8-ounce servings)

Prep Time: 10 minutes

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

1.  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.

2.  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.
