Fruity Friday – Week 4 Citrus Wake-Up
Welcome to week four of my Day Zero Challenge to cook my way through a cookbook. Today we’re making Citrus Wake-Up.
You can find the details on the original post, Fruity Friday.
4 juicy oranges, about 500g (1lb 2oz) in total
1 pink grapefruit
slices of lemon and lime
1) Cut the oranges, grapefruit, lemon and lime 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, 4 tbsp of water, the sugar and shreds of mint. Stir then pour into glasses over a few ice cubes and, if you like, slices of lemon and lime.
Each serving provides:
