A mixture of limeade and lemonade.

This makes 2 quarts

1/3 cup lemon juice (usually 2 lemons)
2/3 cup lime juice (usually 4 limes)
1/2 cup pure cane sugar
top off with cool water (should be about 6 1/2 cups)

Estimated nutritional value per 8 oz glass:
Calories: 45
Vitamin C:  40%
Carbohydrates:  6gr (2% RDA)
Dietary Fiber:  1.5gr (6% RDA)

Note: If you use juice from concentrate, such as Realemon or Realime, they are usually pasteurized and lose all of their Vitamin C, along with most of the dietary fiber.  Fresh lemons and limes are best, of course.  Using a juicer will help you get all of the juice out of the lemons and limes.  Also, this is pretty tart - if you are going to drink it without ice on a hot day I would add a little water to thin it.
