State Fair Lemon-Orange Shakeups

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Bone Man

Those in authority say that this one actually outsells the regular lemon shakeup at the Illinois State Fair. I love both! There's nothing more satisfying on a hot summer day at the fair, or now, at home.

This was a nice change for breakfast this morning! I ended up using 1/2 the lemon and a whole orange. (lack of juice). This drink will be perfect when we get those hot summer days back. Will definitely make this one again and again! Thanks Bone Man! Made for My 3 Chefs 2009.
