Grapefruit Soda

These non alcoholic drinks are delicious and simply made.  Combine grapefruit, lemon, and lime for this refreshing citrus soda.

While the neighbor kid (a.k.a. “Duct Tape”) was at our house today, he was describing to The Fruitarian and me about his big plans to be a YouTube star.  He’s going to have his own channel and everything.

I couldn’t quite get a grasp of what all these videos are going to be about, but apparently several scripts have been written, and at least one involves Duct Tape shaving off his coveted mustache.

I think he is the only 12 year old in the subdivision with a mustache.  You can understand his reluctance to shave it.

The one thing that will tie all these YouTube videos together is sandwiches.  Yes, sandwiches.  Grilled Cheese, mostly.  The videos that aren’t specifically about sandwiches will have sandwiches as a sub-theme or at least a prop.

It’s as good a prop as any, if you ask me, and is definitely appropriate for videos made by teenagers.

I, however, am not a teenager (as Robb kindly reminded me, by looking through old photo albums and saying, “Look how young you were!,” as if I am not young now.), so I require more adult props.  And my props aren’t for YouTube videos, they’re for real life.

And this blog.

Which, let’s face it, is a lot like YouTube but without the videos.

Truth be told, this particular life-prop isn’t adult in the afternoon-cocktail-no-kids-allowed sense, but more in the kids-prefer-grape-soda-to-grapefruit-soda sense.  I don’t mind if my kids drink this, but they probably won’t.

Which is just as well, because I prefer to keep this to myself anyway.  It just reminds me of a lazy summer day, which is something I could really use right about now.

Grapefruit Soda
A refreshing grapefruit lemon-lime soda.
Serves: 4
  • 3 grapefruits
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 lime
  • 4 cups lemon-lime soda
  1. Juice the fruits, and pour all juices into one bottle, passing through a strainer to remove excess pulp and seeds. (*see notes)
  2. Chill combined juices. Mix 1 part juice with 2 parts lemon-lime soda.
I ended up with about 1½ cups grapefruit juice, about ¼ cup lemon juice, and 2 T. lime juice, just less than 2 cups of juice altogether.

    That sounds like a very refreshing drink. Since I have all of those ingredients, from my trees, except for the lemon lime soda of course. I am going to make it.
    Thanks for sharing, Cute blog.
