Summer is in full swing and I'm loving every minute of it. The warmer temperatures and the long days just make everything seem so casual and laid back, and that's totally my style! Today I'm sharing a simple refreshing drink that I hope you love!
To go along with my laid back summer mood, I made you a fizzy lemonade with an extra kick...orange juice! So much yum! I guess this drink would be perfect if you're the kind of lady who does brunch. I've never participated in brunch, but if I were hosting one I'd make this! It's tangy, fizzy, a little bit sweet, and perfectly refreshing!
Fizzy Orange LemonadeMakes approximately 7 cups
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups sparkling water, divided
4 cups orange juice
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 8 lemons)
Combine sugar and 1 1/2 cups sparkling water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour into a heatproof container and place in the fridge to cool completely.
Once the simple syrup has been completely cooled, combine it with the remaining sparkling water, orange juice, and lemon juice in a large pitcher. Stir to combine. Add ice and orange slices if desired.
