“People go crazy for this stuff. It’s spark-y, quite delicious, and a natural mixer for margaritas! On slow nights we keep our dishwashers busy squeezing limes and freezing the juice for later. We use an old manual squeezer from Mexico and juice an entire case at a time.”
Recipe Ingredient Details:
13 cups water (divided)
3 cups natural cane sugar
2 stems fresh rosemary
4 cups fresh lime juice
Combine 3 cups water and sugar in saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring as sugar dissolves. Boil gently, undisturbed and uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, add rosemary, cover, and let mixture steep, covered, for 1 hour. You’ll need the hour to squeeze limes!
Add lime juice and remaining 10 cups water. Stir it up and ice it down. Looks lovely garnished with lime rounds and small sprigs of rosemary.
