When serving, for those who prefer a drink with a kick, serve a glass of the beverage along with a shot of Rum or Vodka for the drinker to add if they desire.

This recipe can be made anytime, but you will get these fruits and juices at their cheapest in the Summer, and save on the cost.

This recipe is a little tart, but not overly. Keep it Cold, and make fresh each time for the best flavor.

As this Recipe uses only natural fruits and unsweetened liquids, and has no added Sugar, then it is a good natural and refreshing drink.
