Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, honey, and 2 cups water and place over medium-high heat. Cut the vanilla bean in 1/2 lengthwise, and using the back of the knife, scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod and add to the saucepan, along with the pod.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 4-5 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture thickens. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  3. Put the lemon juice into a gallon jar or pitcher. Pour the sugar syrup through a strainer into the pitcher and discard pod.
  4. Add water or club soda to equal 1 gallon and stir well.
  5. Serve over ice with lemon wheels or wedges.
