Citrus Water {Punch}

This simple citrus drink is the perfect solution for pretty much any event.  Not overly sweet, but definitely stepping up a notch from your average water with lemon.  I view this as a somewhat mellow lemonade; perfect for kids and adults.

Citrus Water
Recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe

2 Tbsp. citric acid
5 quarts water
2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. pure lemon extract
3 sliced lemons
3 sliced limes
crushed ice

In a large punch bowl, stir water, sugar, citric acid and lemon extract together.
Add sliced citrus and ice.

**Leaving the lemon and lime slices in the punch will make an overly sour, acidic taste.  If you have leftovers, remove them from the punch before storing.
