A drink for a lazy winter’s Saturday

Today’s winter is 20 degrees, bright sun, blue sky and gentle breeze…perfect conditions that render a jacket necessary only inside the house!

And in the garden on the table sit freshly squeezed juice: blood orange from a generous neighbour down the street, orange from Daddyken’s parent’s orange tree and mint that’s growing in random places in our front yard.

I love the summery flavour – the blood orange is sweet and a little tart, while the orange juice is just wonderfully sweet – no extra sugar involved! Mixing the two juices and not straining the pulp is my recommendation. Apart from the perfect colour combination, it’s a perfect balance of summer on a lazy Saturday afternoon in Sydney.
