I spent many a summer making lemon and orange shake-ups in a family friend's hot stand at a county fair somewhere in the Midwest. Recently I bought a huge amount marked down oranges for $2 and improvised to serve a no mess version of this special treat. It just tastes like summer!
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: none
Serves: 4 glasses
Cost: Practically free
3 oranges sliced
1/8-1/4 cup sugar or sugar substitute to taste
large jar (I used a very large plastic applesauce jar)
Place the sliced oranges in the bottom of a large jar. Using the end of a wooden spoon smash oranges until just rinds are remaining. Fill the jar to the rim with ice. Add water. Seal and shake for about one minute.
