Here goes. For every four cups of juice, add one cup of sugar syrup.
[this is from memory folks, bear with] I think that should be one cup
sugar to one cup water, stirred until the sugar dissolves, and boiled
for five minutes.
Then, use three parts water [or sparkling water - seltzer] for every
one part juice+syrup. I don't know your serving sizes, so I can't
get more specific, but it should be served over ice. My recipe calls
for mint leaves in the bowl when you mix the hot syrup and the juice,
but I've used mint extract before, and it works all right.[if
