We're Having A Heatwave

In France it is very typical to make beverages using sparkling water like Perrier. Not only refreshing, but the bubbles have a fun kick.

Charlotte is gearing up for a week of 100 degree weather. I plan to keep cool with a little summer in my glass: Perrier Limonata


Simple Syrup

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Perrier (to make syrup)

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups Perrier

Lemon slices, lime twists, rosemary sprigs

Make simple syrup using sugar and 1/2 cup Perrier in a small saucepan, and heat over medium-high heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, about four minutes. Pour into a glass or a small pitcher and chill completely in refrigerator or freezer.

When chilled, mix simple syrup with lemon juice and divide between two tall glasses. Add 1 cup
cold Perrier to each glass, decorate with a pretty garnish of your choice, and serve.
For extra fun, you can spike with a shot of limoncello.

Serves 2
