I make this for every summer party, and it is a favorite! Since we're usually making more than one pitcher, I do buy bottled lime juice instead of squeezing my own, and I only use 1 - 1 1/2 cups of the simple syrup; 2 cups makes it way too sweet. However, scaling back the sweetness makes these taste *perfect*, and subs[filtered]uting the bottled lime juice makes them far less labor intensive. It is a great recipe!
TWO cups of sugar? This sounds sickeningly disgusting...
To make it non alcoholic, maybe substitute club soda for the tequila. I'm making these for a party, be back with the results!!
I would like to make this non-alcoholic.....any suggestions on substitutions?
