  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup lemon peel strips (about 6 lemons)
  • 3 cups lemon juice (about 14 lemons)
  • 1 bottle (1 liter) club soda, chilled

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, heat sugar and water over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring frequently. Stir in lemon peel strips. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  • 2. Stir in lemon juice; cover and refrigerate until chilled. Discard lemon peel. Pour mixture into a large pitcher; gradually stir in club soda. Yield: 10 servings (2-1/2 quarts).
