Old-fashioned Orangeade

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
  1. Juice one orange.  Be sure to get every last drop of juicy goodness out of it.
  2. Pour the juice into a 16-oz cup over crushed ice.
  3. 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!
