Soak Lime Rinds in Sugar First for More Flavorful Limeade

I’m a sucker for kids’ lemonade stands by the side of the road, which I’m physically incapable of passing up. As a result, I spend most of my summer politely choking down some of the worst lemonade on the planet in support of my littlest neighbors (it’s their childlike entrepreneurship that I find so refreshing).

I usually zest my citrus onto a plate and sprinkle a little bit of it into a cup of Sodastream/etc sparkling water. I find that a pinch of zest has more flavor (less tart too) than the actual juice.
