Simple Lemon Syrup

Simple Lemon Syrup


  • 4 cups organic cane sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • A few Lemons Zest
  • 3 cups Fresh Lemon Juice


  1. Simple syrup is simple - it’s one part sugar to one part water.
  2. Cook sugar, water and lemon zest over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved and water boils.
  3. Remove and let cool. Add lemon juice and store in refrigerator until the PARTY!
  4. I tried about 1/2 cup of syrup with the liter bottle that comes with the Sodastream and it seemed to do the trick - YUM.
