A delicious base for all kinds of drinks! Place chopped pineapple or lemon along with some mint in a glass. Muddle (mash), add citrus spice syrup, top with club soda or/and drink of choice. For a party, put out bowls of blueberries, chopped kiwi and mangoes, strawberries, etc. Have fun! Adapted from Bon Appetit magazine( May 2006)

Absolutely wonderful! Lovely blend of flavours. Tried it with iced tea and we loved it. I am definitely going to make a fruit salad with it later this evening (and maybe even try it with vanilla ice-cream!!!) I didn't discard the rinds, I've saved them to make tea-cake! Thank you, Sharon, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely will be making it again!
