Homemade “Orangina”? You bet!


2012-07-17 11.57.42-1edited

I’m sure many of you are familiar with the drink Orangina, right? No? It’s a carbonated citrus beverage made from orange, lemon, mandarin, and grapefruit juices, which was originated in France. Sounds refreshing? Yes, it certainly is. If you’ve tried one before, you probably know it’s a really fun and refreshing drink, and expensive too.  I’m such a cheapskate.

There are abundance of super sweet oranges from my In-Law's garden throughout the year.  You might remember these Orange Marmalade with Meyer Lemon that I've made with those oranges.  If not, you’ve got to check that out.

With the super hot weather in L.A.  I really love to enjoy a cool and refreshing drink, in the afternoon or after a good workout.  I love carbonated beverages but soda is just not a healthy option, especially with the frequency and volume of my consumption.  So, I created the Homemade Orangina to quench the thirst!

I’ve made several version of this Homemade Orangina and they were all wonderful.  This is really simple to prepare, simply add one part of freshly squeezed juice with equal part of club soda.  Recently, I’ve harvested some tangerines from my In-Law’s garden.  The tangerines were even sweeter than the oranges and they added a nice floral tone to the drink.  If you prefer to add a splash of lemon juice, by all means go for it.  It’s a nice refreshing drink that’s not overly sweet.  Best of all, it’s packed with vitamin C and that’s good for you.

I took the pictures of this post in a super hot afternoon and the whole glass of Homemade Orangina was mysteriously evaporated within two minutes right before my eyes! Smile with tongue out

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try.  Until next time, stay cool and take care.

  17. What's more, with that, back to betting. I will call the sort of betting I'm accustomed to drawing back from "unadulterated betting" - all in all, one isn't betting that the climate will help out one's endeavors, one isn't attempting to make a deal, one isn't attempting to construct a site or a business, one isn't seeking and trusting another will react to us. "Unadulterated betting" - bingo, gambling clubs, lotteries, gaming machines, PC games like minesweeper, etc. The objective is dominating in a match stacked against us, and the success constructs nothing aside from the success. No book is composed, no grain is gathered, nothing is assembled. garudaqq
