Another fun and easy way to make your own mixers, this time we are making Sweet and Sour Mix!  If, like me, you buy bags of lemons and limes from Costco and you can never  get through them all before they start to look a little strange.  Or maybe you have a citrus tree that produces a bigger bounty than you could hope to use.  Well my friends, here is a use for all those soon to be wasted fruit.

Another recipe from my favorite bar book, and if you have followed along, it uses the home-made simple syrup I made last week.

  • 1/2 cup of simple syrup (home-made!)
  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of water

Simple enough, just measure it out, pour into a clean glass container, shake it up to mix and throw it in the refrigerator ready to make your next Midori Sour, or if that’s not for you, perhaps a Long Island Iced Tea!

After you try this, you’ll never need to slum it with those Mr & Mrs. T folks that make the store-bought stuff.
