During the hot summer, nothing is better than a refreshing citrus beverage. This drink can be made with any combination of citrus fruit. In the images above, we just made a simple lemonade. But, we have made drinks using limes, grapefruits, and oranges.
You can also alter this recipe by adding in other juices such as blueberry juice, raspberry juice, and others. For adults, you can add in some alcohol. This drink is also wonderful with the addition of some chopped, fresh mint.
Makes: 1/2 gallon (or so)
6-8 cups water (depending on strong you want your citrus beverage)
1/2 cup of citrus juice
1/2 cup sugar (add more if you want the beverage to be sweeter)
Zest of all citrus fruits used
Mix all the ingredients together and stir for a minute to dissolve the sugar. Then, add in a few cups of ice and enjoy!
