Instructions Checklist
  • Use a vegetable peeler to peel off the lime zest in long strips, avoiding the white pith beneath. Put the zest in a medium saucepan with the lime juice. Halve the mandarins and squeeze the juice into the saucepan, then place the squeezed halves into the pan as well.

  • Add the sugar and water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 30 minutes. Strain out and discard the solids.

  • To make a soda, put 2 to 3 tablespoons of the syrup into a large glass full of ice and top with 1 cup of seltzer, stirring well.
