Ingredients

  • 12-14 calamansi fruits
  • 3/4 cup sugar or honey
  • 2 cups water

Instructions

  • Wash the calamansi fruits thoroughly. 
  • Slice them into half and use a lemon squeezer to extract the juice. 
  • Alternatively, you could slice off the top of the limes, being careful not to cut into the seeds. Using your hands, squeeze out as much juice as possible from the limes into a strainer.
  • Add the sugar and water to the fresh calamansi juice and stir thoroughly.
  • Taste the juice, and if it is too astringent or sour, add more sugar or water. Some people add honey in significant quantities (1 cup) to balance out the taste.
  • Refrigerate the juice, serve chilled, and enjoy!

Notes

Traditionally, a lot of sugar or honey is used to sweeten the juice. However, you can even drink it without sweeteners or adjust the sugar to your taste and enjoy the benefits of this juice.
