Lime juice is my all time favourite juice and I wouldn't mind to have it daily.My kids have overtaken me and are a great fan.So on public demand I prepare the lime syrup often during summer.It is so handy when an unexpected guest arrives,all you have to do is mix the syrup with water.It also goes well soda with a dash of salt and pepper powder.You may play with the flavour s as per your taste.Cardamom flavour also tastes good.

Lime juice-1 cup(around 15 lemons)
Sugar-1 cup
Water-3/4 cup
