Yield: 6 glasses


  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar
  • 7 lime wedges
  • Flaky sea salt
  • 3 cups of club soda


  1. Mix the orange, lime, and lemon juice with the agave nectar in a large jug.
  2. Wet the rims of six glasses with a lime wedge. Then press them in a dish of flaky sea salt.
  3. Add ice cubes to each glass and pour in the juice mixture. 
  4. Add the club soda to each glass.
  5. To serve, add a lime wedge to the top of each glass.

The recipe can be altered in a few different ways, for example:

  • Instead of using lime juice you can use lime cordial or freshly squeezed limeade and don’t add the agave nectar as it will be sweet enough without.
  • You can make your mocktail into a slushy by blending the citrus juices with ice, pouring it into the glasses, and then topping up with club soda.
  • Use a tablespoon of golden syrup or half a tablespoon of maple syrup instead of the agave nectar.
  • For the rim of the glasses, use organic raw sugar which will make it sweeter.
