Sparkling Orangeade

Yield Makes 2 quarts
Greet Mom with sparkling orangeade this Mother's Day. The drink gets a more delicate flavor from freshly squeezed juice, but in a pinch, feel free to go for made-from-concentrate. The juices and sugar can be combined (step 1) up to 1 day ahead; cover and chill. Add the ice and sparkling water just before serving.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 liter sparkling water
  • orange slices (optional)

How to Make It

  1. In a large pitcher (at least 2 qt.), stir orange juice, lime juice, and sugar until sugar is dissolved.

  2. Add 2 cups ice cubes and sparkling water and stir to blend.

  3. Pour into tall glasses, adding orange slices if desired.
