Sparkling Limeade

Talk about refreshing. We had this with lunch today. Like lemonade but limeade and with zip. I need a lime tree.

1 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lime juice, from 8-10 limes
1 liter seltzer water or club soda
Ice cubes

In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water and sugar. cook, stirring over medium heat until is dissolved and mixture is clear, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a pitcher and cool.

To serve, stir together sugar-water mixture, lime juice and seltzer water. Pour over ice and garnish with zest or lime slices.

Rookie's Notes:
If you think I am going to hand-juice 10 limes, you are bonkers. From my wedding, I have a little dinky automatic juicer. I have seen them at Wal-Mart for like $10.
