Orange Lemonade

Orange Lemonade Recipe

Sounds  . . . interesting, doesn't it?

Can there be such a thing as "orange" lemonade?

Isn't what makes lemonade, lemonade, the lemons?

We were at my mom's and she made this tasty drink to go along with our grilled burgers.

Both were delicious!

I think when I make this I'll double the recipe . .  .

 . . .it's that good!

What makes this so tasty is that it so citrus-y tasting -- not really able to identify either the lemonade or the orange juice.  It's just thirst-quenching!

This was originally posted in "Country Woman" in September 2011.

The original recipe says it serves 12 . . .I'm thinking they were either small children or  little drinkers! 

Orange Lemonade

2 quarts water
1 cup sugar
1 can (12 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 can (12 ounces) frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed

In a large saucepan, heat water and sugar until sugar is dissolved, making a simple syrup.  Stirring the mixture occasionally until the sugar dissolves. Cool the mixture.

Transfer to a large pitcher or container; stir in both of the concentrates. Chill. Serve in chilled glasses.
