I wanted lemonade a couple of weeks back, but did not have enough lemons. So, I made orange-lemonade. It was simple, and the beverage was refreshing. This is what I do: Improvise. Experiment with new things. You might be surprised at what you will enjoy.


2 large oranges

2 lemons

1/8 to 1/4 cup honey


  1. Wash the fruit. Use a clean towel to dry them.
  2. Cut the oranges and lemons in half.
  3. Squeeze as much juice out of each half as possible, into the pitcher.
  4. Add the honey, then set the insert (if there is one) into the pitcher.
  5. Cut the lemon peel into chunks and place them in the insert.
  6. Pour water over the fruit, then cover and refrigerate.


  • Try using different types of fruit.
  • Did you know you can grow organic Meyer lemon trees in your home?

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve over ice on a hot summers’ eve, garnished with fresh mint and a lemon slice.


Enjoy the warm weather!
