    ChrisMc's Note:

    My mom used to make these for us in the summer. Very easy - the syrup can be made in advance, and the limes and carbonated water purchased and used as desired. The servings are the number of phosphates made with 1 quart syrup (ballpark).

      The name does not do this drink any justice (wasn't quite sure what it was)!! It needs to be called "Lovely, Refreshing Lime Sparkling Drink"! This certainly quenches the thirst on a hot summer day. I cut the recipe in half and had it in a pint jar....but to make the syrup easier to pour, I transfered this to a clean glass jar (eg. glass vinegar bottle or water bottle) It reminded my hubby of a lime drink he used to have as a wee tot!!! This would be lovely with a spash of gin or vodka. Kudos to your Mum, ChrisMc...you do have a winner! Update: Works well with lemon too

      This was so good I drank two of these in a tall glass the first day that I tried the recipe. I will make this again and again. Barb in Texas

      I made this as one of my 3 choices for the 1st Pick Your Chef game. Couldn't be much easier to prepare, and it was very refreshing. The sweet syrup was a nice balance to the lime, and I plan to have a lot of these this summer.
