GMa's 'Squirt' Beverage for her 'lil squirts

Diana Newton


A knock off of "Squirt" soda pop. For many years before she passed, I would cut the grass for her, once a week. In this part of MO the humidity oft times almost surpasses the temp in the summer days and nights.
So very refreshing seeing her walk outside with that in her hand with her big brimmed garden hat and the smile and face of an angel.
I made this myself for many many years past, I can not drink grapefruit juice now because of interaction with me BP meds *frown*
Cheers, GMa we were so very blessed to have you 81 years!! Enjoy, y'all- Diana

Directions Step-By-Step

She would take a tall ice tea glass, fill it half to 2/3rds full of grapefruit juice and then top it off with 7up, actually it was diet 7up. Fill to almost brim with ice, stir with the ice tea spoon quite a few stirrin's and swirlin's *smile*. Probably about 30 seconds or so and bring that outside to me for a cool down drink.
