How To Make Homemade Sweet And Sour Mix

You can whip up your own homemade sweet and sour mix with just a few ingredients.

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (don't use Roses Lime Juice)
1 cup freshly squeeze lemon juice

Make A Simple Syrup

Add the sugar and water to a small sauce pan.  Heat over medium-high heat just until the sugar dissolves. Allow the mixture to cool.  Simple syrup is used in hundreds of cocktails so it's great to keep on hand.  I store mine in the refrigerator in a jar with a tight fitting lid.

Make The Sweet and Sour Mix

Add 1 the lemon and lime juices to the simple syrup you made above and stir briskly to combine.  If you are not using it right away you can store it for at least a couple of weeks, refrigerated, in a jar with a tight fitting lid.
