Note: To make limonada, add sparkling water to the lime-sugar syrup. If you like it a bit sweeter, add a sugar to taste.
Makes about 5 ½ cups, serving 6
2/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2/3 cup sugar
3 cups dry, fruity red wine, like Beaujolai, Zinfandel or many red table wines
1 cups sparkling water
4 to 6 wheels of lime, with a cut made on one side, for garnish
1. The lime-sugar syrup. Mix together the lime juice, sugar and ¼ cup water, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
