Fresh Grape Mocktail - Summer Cooler, Zero Sugar Mixed fruit juice

Some recipes happen as you make, this mocktail is one such recipe. I had a big bowl of fresh grapes, usually i clean and wash the grapes and leave it on the dining table for us to snack. Usually my lil one, likes seedless grapes, but all of a sudden he doesn't want to touch them and my elder one runs a mile when i offer him a fruit.  So this grapes bowl is sitting simply in the refrigerator for the past one week. 
Last weekend, we had a small meet up with our friends for lunch. I normally make some lassi/panagam to serve as a welcome drink, and since it is hot these days, i decided to make some fresh juice. I took the grapes out, juiced them first, then saw the oranges, squeezed them into the grapes, then added a squeeze of lime. All mixed and strained, it tasted just awesome. 
That too zero sugar and a gorgeous color. My lil one just loved the drink. Today while i was clicking the pics, he came and reserved the small bottle for himself. This mocktail can be made 3-4 hours ahead to save the kitchen time. Try this for your next party and let me know how you liked it!! :)
Ingredients (serves 5-6)
4 cups seedless red grapes
Juice of 2 oranges
Juice of a lime
2 cups of ice cold water
Method
  • Take the grapes in a large bowl. Add 1.5 cups of cold water to it and using an immersion blender, blend it to juice.
  • It won't be a smooth juice, to this add orange juice and lime juice. I just squeezed the orange with my hand into the grape juice. Do not bother about the seeds, you will be straining the juice, anyway. After adding the other two juices, mix it well with a ladle.
  • Strain the juice through a strainer. Add another 1/2 cup of water to the strained pulp and squeeze the juice well. Refrigerate the juice for 30 minutes and serve it chilled.
