½ cup sugar

3 tablespoons honey

2½ cups water

Juice of 5 – 6 lemons, about 1 cup

4 cups Carbonated water

Lemon slices

Mint leaves


Gently heat sugar, honey and water in a pot while stirring, until the sugar has dissolved.

Let cool.

Fill up a large pitcher with the syrup, lemon juice, carbonated water, lemon slices and the mint leaves.

Serve with ice cubes as needed

In this recipe, the honey is not the sweetener, but a taster. Pick a honey where the bees have collected the nectar from plants with your favorite flavor.
