• 3 large oranges
  • 4 lemons, plus extra lemon slices to serve
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 1 litre bottle of sparkling water


  1. 1

    Using a vegetable peeler, carefully peel the skin from the oranges and lemons, avoiding the white pith. Put in a saucepan with the sugar and 1 litre of tap water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 mins, then remove from the heat and leave to cool completely. Leave to stand, covered, for a few hours or, if you have time, overnight.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, squeeze the juice from the oranges and lemons.

  3. 3

    When ready to serve, remove the peel from the sugary liquid and add the fresh juices. Add ice and lemon slices, then top up with the sparkling water to serve.
