I love citrus anything!  Orangeade is a delicious, simple treat to make - perfect treat to fight the heat!

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • *orange zest (optional)

Bring sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan, then remove from heat to cool.  Once cool, place into a jar and refrigerate the simple syrup.  To make the simple syrup taste even more orangey, add a bit of orange zest to the mixture just as it is boiling.

  • 2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (**use Florida Valencia oranges)
  • 6 cups water

In a pitcher, mix simple syrup, freshly squeezed orange juice and water.  Stir to combine all ingredients and enjoy!
