My Big Helper sold orangeades at her lemonade stand for missions.
She sold a lot of orangeades.
This drink is deceptively simple - but surprisingly delicious.
We watched as delight lit up people's eyes - one customer after another. My Big Helper and my husband agreed to let me share their recipe with you. I hope, if you try this, that you'll let us know what you think.
We'd love to know if your eyes lit up, too.
Here's how to make your very own old-fashioned orangeade.
- 1 orange
- simple syrup (recipe below)
- crushed ice
- Juice one orange. Be sure to get every last drop of juicy goodness out of it.
- Pour the juice into a 16-oz cup over crushed ice.
- Fill with simple syrup.
How to make your own simple syrup: Cook three cups sugar with one quart of water until all the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a pitcher and fill to the three quart line. Chill.
So, go, have a party, and serve your very own old-fashioned orangeades. Watch your guests' eyes light up!
