Citrus Crush: A sophisticated version of a snow cone!

By Crystal Dey

Summer is hot. Ice is cold. It just makes sense to combine the two for a summer treat that is just right.
The Citrus Crush is a sophisticated version of the snow cone. It’s light and crisp, yet sweet and satisfying.
Whether you grab a dessert spoon or splash a little lemon soda on top, it’ll keep you cool when the weather heats up.

4 cups water
1 cup lemon juice (3 large lemons)
1 cup grapefruit juice (1 grapefruit)
2 cups sugar
Lemon and grapefruit slices for garnish
Makes 4 servings

In a saucepan, dissolve sugar in water; bring to a boil while stirring.
Cook solution uncovered for five minutes without stirring.
Remove from heat and chill in refrigerator until no longer steaming. Either place a towel under the pan or transfer to a ceramic bowl.
Juice lemons and grapefruit; add juice to water. Ladle into ice cube trays. Once frozen, remove cubes and pulse lightly in a food processor.
Rim a glass with sugar, garnish with lemon and grapefruit slices and spoon ice into glass.
Add a citrus soda if you wish to imbibe rather than scoop and savor.
