Lime syrup

Bring the water to the boil with the lime zest, lime juice (approx. 150 ml) and sugar while stirring. Reduce over a medium heat to a syrupy consistency for approx. 20 mins. While still boiling hot, pour the syrup through a sieve into the clean, warmed bottle and fill to just below the rim. Seal immediately and leave to cool.


Blend the water with the basil until smooth, pour through a fine sieve into glasses. To each glass add 1 tbsp of syrup, lime juice and ice cubes, then top up with sparkling water.

Good to know
Shelf life: Store the lime syrup in a cool, dark place for approx. 2 months. Once opened, keep the bottle in the fridge and consume the syrup quickly.
Tip: Serve the spritzer with slices of lime and basil leaves.
