limonata at home

a couple years ago our Costco started carrying Limonata - and i was pretty pumped, apparently. we bought enough to last us 2 summers and now we're officially out. 
my late night craving for the dry, crispy drink moved me to try & make my own.

it's pretty close to the real deal & the men in my life sure enjoyed it.
meaning, i drank the glass pictured here, and they drank the rest.

 sure it's an Italian drink, but i'm pretty sure no one would care at your Cinco De Mayo party tonight.

1 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
1 c. simple syrup (1 c. sugar dissolved into 1 c. water over a stove top)
4 c. san pellegrino sparkling water
chill 2-3 hours & serve over ice

p.s. i only tested this recipe once, so if you perfect it, please update me!
