Recipe by Baby Kato

Summer is coming and its time to start looking for new and unique drinks to try. Here's a twist on an old favourite. You can also use Meyer lemon or ruby red grapefruit juice with this recipe. (Also you could substitute the juice for your favourite lemon, orange or grapefruit liqueur or soda).

Nice summer drink. Or good for any season. I made mine with regular orange juice. Made for Aussie Recipe Swap game June 2013.
