Weekend Thirst: Sorrel-Lime Cooler


Prep time: 15min

Total time: 35min

Makes: 4 glasses


1/4 cup agave nectar

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup thinly sliced sorrel leaves (you may use basil, say, or tarragon if you don't sorreal)

4 limes, quartered, plus 4 thin rounds, for garnish

40 ml seltzer, chilled


Step 1: Combine agave nectar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring. Let syrup cool completely, then transfer to a blender and puree with sorrel until smooth. Pour syrup through a fine sieve into a bowl and discard solids.

Step 2: Squeeze lime quarters into a large pitcher. Add quarters to pitcher and gently smash with the back of a wooden spoon to release the oils in the rind. Add sorrel syrup and seltzer. Serve over ice, garnished with lime rounds.
