How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in top of a double boiler. Gradually add orange juice, water, lime juice, and egg yolks; stir until smooth.

Beat egg whites (at room temperature) and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.
