Orange Blossom Juice

united-arab-emirites.food.recipe.img_1201

Orange juice is a hardworking breakfast drink. When everyone else in the house is still rubbing the sleep out of their eyes, orange juice is waaaay perky. It contains enough joy to put coffee out of business.

But what if you had something a little more fancy to offer your family (or guests) in the morning?

Orange juice with a splash of orange blossom water is a direct inspiration from the United Arab Emirates (and all over the Gulf), where hosts offer guests orange blossom water & orange juice syrups to their guests.  The orange blossom water adds a floral note – a bit of  perfume-laden romance – something which is often sorely lacking in the early morning hours.

If you’d like to get extra fancy, squeeze in a few drops of lemon juice. That’ll brighten up the flavor even more.

There’s really no recipe… start with a 1/4 tsp orange blossom water per cup of OJ, and add more to taste. I suggest you use the best orange juice you can find. If you can’t squeeze your own, consider buying fresh squeezed or at least a juice with pulp.

Also, consider adding rose water instead of orange blossom water for a fun variation on the same drink (and what about Orange Blossom Mimosas? Hello.)

Here’s to a happy Friday and an even happier weekend.

I hope your stovetop travels take you somewhere awesome!

    I have a question. Do you have to refrigerate the orange blossom water after opening the bottle?

  2. guess what, Amanda…I have had bottles of the orange blossom and the rose – not refrigerated for about 5 years – and they are as pungent when opened as they ever were.. However, I recommend refrigeration if where you are storing them is too warm because otherwise a little mold could grow…Cool and dark is best. Originally, I intended to use for a body splash and somehow in all the ups and downs of life, the bottles were relegated to the back of my mind and cabinet. When I finally caught up with them, as I said, they are good to go…

  3. This was such a delicious and easy recipe! I’m for sure going to make it again. I did try rose water, and added a bit of lime juice. It worked so well! Thanks again.

  4. Hello, Just now i read your Orange Blossom Juice recipe. Now water is come in to my tongue.Really this is delicious recipe.Thanks

  5. Thanks for a great recipe. I love any planet based juice recipe. Really planet based item is so essential for human food because of we are destroying our eco-balance to be fulfilled our demand. Day by day are decreasing our animal sector. That’s why all are should more publish & share this type of recipe, food to increasing public awareness.
