INGREDIENTS

  • 175ml–250ml sugar or some xylitol, to taste

TO SERVE:

METHOD

  1. Make a syrup by heating the sugar (or xylitol) and water in a small saucepan and stir until the sugar has dissolved completely. Set aside.
  2. If using grapefruit, use a juicer to extract the juice until you have the required amount.
  3. Pour the juice and the sugar water into a jug. Top up with the cold water to taste. Refrigerate for 30–40 minutes.
  4. Serve with ice, sliced lemons or frozen grapefruit wedges.

COOK’S TIP: If the lemonade is too sweet for your taste, add a little more lemon juice to it.
