Aimee Fortney's Homemade Orangeade

Posted: Updated:


I love citrus anything!  Orangeade is a delicious, simple treat to make - perfect treat to fight the heat!


1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups water

*orange zest (optional)


Bring sugar and water to a boil in a saucepan, then remove from heat to cool.  Once cool, place into a jar and refrigerate the simple syrup.  To make the simple syrup taste even more orangey, add a bit of orange zest to the mixture just as it is boiling.


2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (**use Florida Valencia oranges)

6 cups water


In a pitcher, mix simple syrup, freshly squeezed orange juice and water.  Stir to combine all ingredients and enjoy!
