Oran-Ginger Dream ~ Recipe ReDux
Polar vortex can’t keep us down! In this winter filled with temperatures in the teens and twenties, the first day of 40 degree had me day dreaming about warmer days ahead. Hot teas have been helping me survive the cold, but the change in weather had me wanting to sip something summery. This healthy beverage Recipe ReDux is my plea to Mother Nature to bring us warmer weather – in moderation, of course.
I love this recipe because it is so simple, yet the flavors are transformative. It is also versatile in that you can further jazz up the citrusy spice flavor with a fizz, or craft into a classy cocktail. For warm days or when you want to escape to somewhere exotic, I present to you this Oran-Ginger Dream – sunshine in a glass.
Makes four 4 oz. drinks
16 oz. 100% orange juice or fresh squeezed orange juice
2 tsp. fresh grated ginger root
Combine ingredients and blend well. Serve over a full glass of ice. (These also make fantastic ice pops!)
- For a kid-friendly fizz: combine with 4 oz. of unflavored seltzer
- For an “over 21” fizz: pour over 4 oz. of prosecco or champagne
- For an evening cocktail: add 1 oz. of vodka or tequila to each glass and stir
