Lime, orange, grapefruit and lemon are juiced and combined with fresh mint for a very invigorating burst of vitamin C.

Serves: 4 

  • 1 lime
  • 4 juicy oranges
  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 1 lemon
  • grated zest of 1 lime
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint
  • For serving (optional)
  • thin slices of lime
  • thin slices of lemon

Preparation:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Cut the citrus fruits in half crossways. Juice them using either an electric juicer or a simple citrus squeezer, preferably one that strains out the seeds but leaves in a generous quantity of pulp. If you have no squeezer at all, poke a fork into the flesh several times, then squeeze the juice from the fruit by hand, prodding with the fork now and again.
  2. Combine the citrus juices in a jug with the lime zest, water, sugar and mint. Stir, then pour into glasses over a few ice cubes and, if you like, add slices of lime and lemon.
