Notes

  • Don’t omit the pinch of salt. It’s the most important part. The salt makes the citrus flavors more pronounced and it really rounds the entire drink out.
  • Keep the mixed juices (separate from the sparkling water) in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. 
To make honey syrup: bring to a boil ½ cup filtered water and 1 cup honey. Stir until honey dissolves. Cool to room temperature. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
