Orange Ecstasy - A Refreshing Summer Mocktail

Oranges add a special tang to any recipe. Not just that they are so full of goodness that they are in desserts, drinks, squashes and then in cosmetics too. An orange is equal to a small world of benefits. The fiber in orange reduces high cholesterol level in the body and the natural fruit sugar, fructose controls the rising blood sugar levels after a meal. Oranges are an excellent source if vitamin C and flavonoids. So eat at least an orange a day, specially in summers.

Normally I don't like juices, still I like having fresh juices. Orange juice is my favorite. In canned juices also, orange tastes better than others. So, for natural flavor try to use fresh orange juice.


2 cups chilled orange juice
3 cups soda
3 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup milk
1 cup vanilla ice cream
sugar to taste
1 tbsp grated rind of orange
A drop of orange color


* In a jar, mix together milk, orange juice, lemon juice, orange rind, sugar, and color
* Stir till everything is mixed and sugar dissolved.
* Add soda
* In glasses, add ice cream and our the orange soda mixture
* Serve chilled

It seems to be a great beverage to enjoy during a hot summer day!

I think I'd like a glass of this with one of my orange Petit Fours! And I agree with no remorse when it comes to foods, in German there is a saying: When I ride into hell I would then I will ride on the pretty horse; so when I eat, I eat with full pleasure!
