One day, I was craving a Long Island Iced Tea, but I didn't have any sweet and sour mix for it. This is what I came up with. I like it even better than the stuff from the store.

How To Make sweet & sour cocktail mixer

  • 1
    Add water and sugar to medium saucepan. Stir constantly over medium-high heat until sugar is completely dissolved; remove from heat and allow to cool a bit.
  • 2
    Add lime and lemon juices, stir, then pour into jar/jars. Hint: Pouring from 8 to 10 oz. jars is easier than pouring from the standard pint jar. I like to use my recycled small jelly jars.

    Place lids on jars and store in refrigerator.
