Kumquat Juice

 I picked some kumquats from my parents kumquat tree thinking it'll be a brilliant idea to make juice out of this tiny citrus fruit. Picked, washed, sliced, seeded, pureed, I then mixed with simple syrup and water. I use only enough sugar to keep the drink light. Kumquats are a bit sour to begin with, so I was aiming for a sort of kumquat-ade juice. After getting the perfect balance of sugar-puree-water (perfect for my palette at least), I found that the little bits of kumquat skin added an extra element to this drink, more flavor, so no need to strain. This drink is awesome.
