I'm not a huge fan of fruit juice or soft drinks... But I had a Mocktail in Paris a couple of years ago which was amazing! This is my interpretation of it - I have no idea what it was called, just the memory of the zingy freshness!
1cupfreshly squeezed orange juice
Sprigs of mintto garnish
Cut 6 slices of orange (4-5 mm thick), and 2 each of the lime and lemon. Then cut each slice in half, giving you semi-circles. Set aside.
Squeeze any juice from the remaining fruit and then roughly chop the rind place it all in a blender with the orange juice and sugar syrup. Pulse a few time to mix and chop a little more.
Take four highball glasses and into each place 2 pieces of the orange and one each of the lemon and lime, add 4 ice cubes to each and then strain the juice from the blender, dividing it evenly between each glass.
Top each with soda water and garnish with remaining orange and a sprig of mint.
The juice mixture can be prepared in advance and placed in the fridge so that it is ready to serve your guests when they arrive, or ready for a refreshing drink on one of those very hot summer days!
By pulsing the fruit, peel and all, you release some of the oils from the zest, giving the drink a lovely zing!
I'm sure if you wanted something a little 'stronger', a nip of Cointreau or Limoncello would take it to that level....
