Orange lemonade with marjoram, mint & oregano


I´ve been in love with mixing summerly drinks lately. I prefer some refreshing and fruity or tropical drinks more than ice cream. So I constantly try to find new ingredients to add to my drinks and this time I made some orange lemonade, which I really love. Tomorrow we will pick up 150kg (yes it´s a lot!) of apricots from a farmer, since our apricots aren´t very extensive this year and we´ll be cooking apricot jam and I will think about some apricot cake recipes as well. Maybe you guys have some great apricot recipes?     Have a great weekend! (:

You will need:

  • freshly squeezed orange juice form 3-4 oranges
  • juice of one lemon
  • 3 tbs. of sugar
  • a handful of marjoram leaves
  • a handful of mint leaves
  • a handful of oregano leaves
  • 500 ml cooled soda, & ice if you prefer

Bring orange-, lemon juice and sugar to a boil. Add all of your herbs. Remove pot from stove and let steep covered for about 15 minutes. Strain juice and let chill at a cool place. When cooled, pour your lemonade into a carafe and fill up with soda.

Serve and enjoy the refreshing taste.
