With summer just around the corner, now is a good time to look at some 'cool' tips to beat the heat and keep ourselves hydrated. This is one of a kind of a juice that you 'll keep coming back to for its simplicity & taste!

Fresh, healthy, delicious, refreshing - what more do you want in a summer drink?

When it comes to juice, there is no hard & fast rules. Add some lime/lemon juice to make it a cool summer (alcohol-free) cocktail. Add some soda water for a fizzy-fancy treat. Just go by your instincts and you 'll always end up with something delicious!!

Basic Info

Prep time - 15 mins
Cook time - n/a
Serves - 3 cups

Oranges - 6 nos (about 3 cups of juice)
