Refreshing Pomelo and Basil Soda

Some of you foodies might have received a new and interesting fruit in your Fruit Bag this week - a pomelo. A pomelo is a giant citrus fruit. It tastes a lot like grapefruit, but is less bitter. To get to its sweet and juicy flesh you have to cut away a tough skin and thick rind, as well as peel the bitter membranes that separate each slice. Rest assured though, the hard work is worth the reward! Here's a yummy and refreshing recipe that you could use your pomelo in. Cheers!

  5. Enjoy
