Mint Grapefruit Lemonade Recipe

The Mint Grapefruit Lemonade is a personal favorite because I’m a big promoter in growing some fun container citrus like I have in my home garden here in Ohio. There are so many great tools you can use to squeeze your own fresh citrus juice.  You can find hand juicers at Walmart, Kroger and of course Amazon.  Be sure to find one that doesn’t chip paint like my old Pampered Chef tool I had to toss in the recycle bin.   I hope you enjoy this recipe and be sure to share with your friends! Thanks for checking out this printable recipe share at the bottom of this post. I hope you take advantage of this option and add this to your favorite recipe folder to use at later date.

Growing Your Own Citrus

Mint Grapefruit Lemonade is just one of the recipes you can grow at home. I have so much fun growing various citrus trees like lemon, lime, orange and kumquat in my greenhouse.  It is fun to harvest my own citrus year-round in my edible garden.  Honestly, they are gorgeous trees and fun to grow but you won’t get a huge harvest off of shrubs grown in a home garden.
