  • 1 cup superfine sugar

To Make Orangeade

  • 3 1/2 cups fresh orange juice (from about 12 oranges)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 3 lemons)

  1. Combine 4 cups water with "ade" ingredients in a pitcher; stir to combine. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Divide among ice-filled glasses.

Cook's Note

Serving Ideas for Lemonade: Make an Arnold Palmer by mixing with equal parts iced tea, or stir in vodka and fresh mint. For Limeade: For a take on the margarita, stir tequila and some fresh cilantro into the pitcher, or use the juice to make Micheladas by adding beer, Worcestershire sauce, and soy sauce; serve with lime wedges. For Orangeade: Try a twist on the screwdriver by adding vodka and some fresh rosemary to the pitcher. For a Creamsicle-inspired drink, float a scoop of vanilla ice cream in Orangeade.
