This is a lovely refreshing drink which I have made numerous times over the years.
You can vary the citrus fruits that you use, any combinations taste good.

Lovely but far too much sugar when we should all be trying to limit it.

I made it first for my child's 1st birthday, and he's now six and every time we are having a party for anyone's birthday this is the drink that's requested, not fizzy drinks
