I am a citrus freak, and this Mexican fruit drink fits the bill! It is such a refreshing thirst-quencher, with its grapefruit, lime and orange juices. I prefer mine more tart and watery; the fiance likes a bit more sugar. It's a "subjective" beverage... tweak to suit your tastes. Prep time includes chilling.

- 4 oranges, juice of (you can slip in some tangerine, too, if you like)
- 2 pink grapefruits, juice of or 2 ruby red grapefruits, juice of
- 9 tablespoons sugar
- 3 1⁄2 cups water
- Bring about 1-1/2 cups of the water to a boil.
- Dissolve the sugar in the water, then let cool.

Yum, I love Agua Fresca's and this one is no exception. Wow...what a blast of citrus flavor. First you taste the orange, then the lime and lastly the grapefruit. Just the perfect amount of grapefruit to give it a zing. My first few sips reminded me of a orange popsicle. Thank you for sharing this lovely treat. Made for Think Pink 2015.
This is so refreshing. Thanks for sharing
