Summer Citrus Drink

It's warming up outside, so we're keeping cool with this . . . I know it just looks like a normal glass of lemonade or limeade, but really, this drink is bursting with all the citrus fruits you can think of!

That's right, if you look close, it has grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime!

I used about this much fruit. If you don't want to count it was:

2 grapefruits
1 orange (would have used more if I had them)
2 limes
2 lemons
I juiced out all the juice and pulp I could get out of the fruit into a pitcher. I also added a little bit of fresh lemon and lime zest from the leftover rinds.

Then I added almost a cup of sugar (YIKES!) I do this a little at a time so I can taste test as I go.
Then I filled the pitcher with lots of ice and water. (I added the ice so it would be cold right away).

And ta-da a delicious, refreshing, summer drink.
Credit goes to my sister-in-law, Ana, who made something similar for me 3 summers ago and I just remembered it today. Thanks, Ana!
