Bright, sweet, and aromatic, this effervescent cocktail will help you cool down and relax on even the hottest of summer days. When buying lemons, choose those that are firm, plump, and heavy for their size. Skin should be smooth and vibrant, with no tints of green (a sign that the lemon is underripe).

This is delicious, even without the alcohol. I decided to make a batch of the main mixture according to recipe so that I could mix a glass for myself throughout the week. The main mixture made a little more 16 oz, so I put it in a glass with some ice cubes and splashed more sparkling water on it. It was delicious just like that! It is a winning combination of flavors.
