Top Tips

  • Make ice cubes with juice instead of water so the lemonade is not diluted.

Something to try next time

  • Swap the grapefruit juice for fresh orange juice or apple juice for a sweeter taste.

Prepare now, eat later

  • Prepare up to 4 hours in advance but add ice cubes just before serving.
