I made delicious homemade orangeade for the Historical Food Fortnightly challenge 6: Juicy Fruits. It’s a recipe from 1922. It’s one of the best soft drinks I’ve ever made! 😀
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups fresh orange juice
- 1 quart water
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
‘Boil sugar and water 5 minutes, adding orange rinds. Strain, chill, add fruit juices and dilute to taste with ice water.’
The orangeade has a wonderful taste of orange, and it’s easy and fast to make (apart from the cooling time of the syrup). I thought about reducing the sugar, but the orangeade isn’t too sweet because of the fresh orange and lemon juice.
The orangeade is perfect for a hot summer day! 😀
