The Ultimate Fruit Punch

The most refreshing blend of citrus juices, combined with fresh fruit.

The Ultimate Fruit Punch

You need this!!

Not all fruit punches are equal. Take my word for it. Yes, they all may be refreshing, but I can assure you some just take it over the top. And I think this fruit punch is the one.

What I especially love about summer is the fresh citrus available at the stores. And how sweet they are. And this is what takes this drink a step above those other fruit juices. We use fresh juice. This Ultimate fruit punch uses fresh orange juice, lime juice, grapefruit juice and is chilled then served with chunks of cold fruit. Yes!!!!

I love seeing those really orange oranges in the stores. You can just look at them and know sweetness. Being in the sunshine state has its benefits. And the grapefruits, they are so pink. Full of so much juice.

These worked great for this drink. I prefer to use fresh fruits and go through the hassle of squeezing so that I can get that fresh from the tree taste AND I am  pulp lover. Not those big chunks that you can't swallow but the minuscule ones that give you a little pop of flavor when you squeeze them.

Not a pulp person? You can strain or you can do the "not so amazing" way and use pre-packaged juices. YOU ARE GONNA REGRET IT.

This punch also has some fresh fruit chunks, pineapple, and watermelon, that have been put to chill and then added. Yummy!!

Once all the squeeze is done. (Our pouring, if you go the bottled way) it's all about mixing, sweetening and chilling.

Then its time to serve. Add your fruits, and alcohol and take yourself away to a verandah with lots of breezes.

You will be sipping on this all day. It makes a lot but I'm not complaining. Great for gatherings or the gatherings in my head with my imaginary friends just so that I can drink more than I would. Haha.

So here's to summer citrus and the best fruit punch to have in your arsenal.
