This refreshing cocktail, adapted from [%bookLink code=0811862097 "Margaritas, Mojitos & More"], is perfect when you want something light. For a first course, pair it with fresh spring rolls or chicken satay.
To make simple syrup, place equal parts white sugar and water in a saucepan; heat until sugar dissolves, then cool before using. I often make more simple syrup than I need, using 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water; I store the extra in a jar in the fridge.
