Summer Cocktails: Citrus Punch

I know summer’s almost over, and school’s about to begin, but the summer season’s not done for a few more months. While we can still enjoy this warm weather, I have a nice beverage recipe for you all. I got the idea from a friend’s girlfriend’s mom during my friend’s housewarming party sometime in the spring. She made some limeade but used the whole lime…juice, rinds, seeds, and all. It got me thinking, so here’s one I came up with.

We have a Magic Bullet personal blender at home, so all measurements are meant for a 22oz blender mug. So just adjust the ratios accordingly.



  • 1/4 slice Lemon
  • 1/2 slice Lime
  • 1/2 slice Mandarin Orange
  • 2 tsp Honey (or more to taste)



  1. Place the lemon, lime, and mandarin orange slices in the blender mug.
  2. Fill with water.
  3. Blend ingredients until smooth.
  4. Strain contents into a big mug or pitcher.
  5. Add honey and stir.
  6. Serve over ice and enjoy!

You can also turn it up a notch by adding an ounce of rum or vodka. If you do, please remember to drink responsibly, and don’t drink and drive. Cheers!
