Orangeade takes me back to my childhood and a hot dog restaurant in downtown Cincinnati that served the best orangeade ever. I made half a recipe but thought the orange flavor was just a little too diluted. I added the juice from another two oranges which brought the right balance between the water and the orange flavor. I thought this recipe was a little sweet, so next time I will reduce the sugar. I definitely will make again and maybe even try Splenda to reduce the calories. Nice change from all the lemonade, limeade, ice tea that I drink in summer. Whatever happened to restaurants serving orangeade???
I didn't really care for the final result, but my husband thought it was great. He said that it could have relied more on the orange flavor. I will definitely make this again, possibly with the addition of more orange juice.
I had a lot of fresh oranges, and this was a good way to use then other than just juice. I did double the orange juice, and added more lemon to taste. Very refreshing drink.
I appreciate lutzflcat's advice to add two more oranges and less sugar because it gave a 4 star recipe a 5 star rating boost!! Thank you for the wonderful idea of orangeade as a refreshing alternative to standard summertime beverages, couldbeanyone!! Yum!!
I really don't understand people that review such things. If when following the recipe it comes out poorly and you have to make huge adjustments to make it work then there is no way that the original recipe should be given top stars.
This was really diluted and I, like many others, had to add a bunch of orange to get the orange juice flavor. I also had to add sugar like everyone else. So the recipe on its own is not all that good but if you follow the advice that others have given you end up with a better recipe, your own recipe.
