  • 4 each Key or Persian Lime equals ½ cup of juice
  • ½ cup Refined Sugar
  • 2 cups Water
  • Ice As required


  • Start by juicing your limes. You'll need about ½ cup of fresh lime juice for every 2 cups of water.
  • In a pitcher or jar, combine the lime juice with an equal amount of sugar. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Add water and ice, stirring until everything is combined. Serve over ice and enjoy!


You could use lemons instead of persian limes, just make sure to adjust the sugar level, you may need slightly less sugar if you use lemons.
