- 2/3 cup honey
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (I use Santa Cruz Organic brand)
- 4 cups soda water (or sparkling wine)
1. Bring honey, water and vanilla bean to a simmer in a sauce pan. Cook, stirring until honey dissolves. Let cool completely. Strain through a fine sieve (I used a metal coffee filter) – there will still be some seeds.
2. Pour into pitcher, stir in lime juice, and top with soda water.
