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.
