... Seriously Citrus...

I love refreshing drinks in the summer!  These are perfect for BBQ's, Potlucks & any other dinner plans.  They are both super easy & so, so yummy!!!

{Lemon Ice}

2 TBSP pure lemon extract
2 TBSP citric acid
3 C. sugar
1 gallon water
crushed or pebble ice

In a large punch bowl mix citric acid and sugar.  Add water & lemon extract.  Add Ice just before serving.  You can also make this ahead of time by measuring out the sugar & citric acid into a Ziploc bag.  Then putting the water & lemon extract in a gallon container.  Mix together when ready to use.  

{Cucumber Limeade}

2 cucumbers (sliced)
4 limes (sliced)
1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1- 2 liter bottle Diet Sprite
Crushed Ice/Pebble Ice 

In a large punch bowl mix limeade & Sprite.  Mix well.  Add cucumbers & limes.  Let soak at least 15 minutes.  Add ice just before serving.
