Citrus Punch

Summer is almost over, but you can still have this refreshing drink regardless of the weather.  It’s really good.  My son and I recommend it.


My children and I were having lunch and they wanted refills of their drinks.  My older son, Justin, uttered that he was thirsty and it was okay if I were to mix his drink with the lemonade and raspberry.  So, I gave him a refill.  He commented it tasted like sweetened grapefruit without the tartness and was so good.  He told me to post it on my blog.  I was quite intrigued, so I tried it.  Oh, my…it was like happiness in my mouth.  It was addicting.  The following day, I told my husband about it.  He said it was just juice.  Well, I put a glass of the citrus punch on his desk.  I saw him picked it up and quaffing the punch.  I wanted to tease him about it, but I held my tongue. 🙂

This refreshing drink would be great at a child’s birthday party.

Here’s a pitcher of Citrus punch I placed in the fridge, so I could pour myself a glass whenever I get thirsty.   Cheers!  🙂


*Note:  If you want to make this drink ahead of time,  I don’t recommend adding the citrus fruits in the mixture overnight.  The tartness of the rind overwhelms the punch.   Cut them ahead of time and add them just before you serve it.
