Your thoughts…

  1. I don’t make enough soft drinks. Though they are a must at garden parties in the summer. This looks delicious :-) thank you for sharing!

  2. This looks very refreshing and I like the addition of the vanilla too.

  3. This sounds fab to me but my daughter would turn her nose up at the idea of bits!

  4. What a lovely refreshing drink which I shall try as I have a bag of clementines and some oranges which need using up;-)
