Doesn't this look sooooo yummy and refreshing, perfect for the winter citrus in season!
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup agave nectar
- 1 grapefruit, juiced
- 2 navel oranges, juiced
- 2 lemons, juiced
- 4 mandarins or clementines, juiced
- 3 cups sparkling water, chilled
- Orange or mandarin slices, for garnish
For the simple syrup: In a small saucepan, bring the water and agave to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool.
Combine the citrus juices and sparkling water in a pitcher. Add the simple syrup and mix well. Pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish with orange slices.
Side Note: Made this for a few friends and everyone liked it...even my boys thought it was good. It is a bit tart, however, so take smaller servings - or you could reduce the lemon a bit, I think it would help. But looking forward to making this again!
Oh and we ran out of Agave Nectar so we substituted for raw honey...tasted great!
