Hot Orange Juice Sipper

"I received this in an e-mail from Florida's Natural Brand orange juice. It sounds absolutely delicious and comforting. I tried doing a search for something like this in an attempt to not duplicate it, but literally thousands of recipes showed up, because so many of them had all or most or some of the words in the recipe. So, for safekeeping, and to share with the rest of 'Zaar, I'm posting this Hot Orange Juice Sipper here. It sounds very reminiscent to an orange spice type tea. I don't know if I'll ever be able to try it personally though, depends on how instant tea powder treats my digestive disorder, but I hope someone tries it and lets me know how it turns out! :) Copied almost exactly from the Florida's Natural website. Other orange juice can be used, but since it came from a specific brand's website, Florida's Natural is suggested. Prep and cook times are estimates."

  1. This tastes like Christmas Holidays. Really nice warm drink for a fall/winter day. I used Tropicana no pulp orange juice, white sugar, whole slightly crushed cloves and regular tea (Lipton Yellow Label). I simmered the water, spices and tea for a minute. Next time I will simmer for 1 1/2 minutes and then add the orange juice. I will probably make this again.
  2. WOW! What a fantastic treat! DH and I enjoyed this Hot O.J. Sipper immensely with our breakfast this morning. Reminds me of our first restaurant date at The Gatekeeper Restaurant in La Jolla CA, many moons ago where they served a similar beverage, and I've been trying for years to replicate it. This is it, and I will treasure the recipe for years to come. Thanks blancpage! Made for the Comfort Cafe event.
  3. With all ingredients at hand, this was a great treat for the guys who were outside raking leaves all day. I also used tea bags (Lipton), whole cloves and a cinnamon stick. I strained the mix through a coffee filter before serving. This is a delicious pitcher of 'sipper' that was enjoyed by us all. A great wintertime treat. Thanks for sharing. :)
  4. This was a great warm me up recipe, especially now that the weather is getting into the minuses. I used a lemon teabag for this as I couldn't find any instant tea. it did turn out good and the lemon fit in very well with the other ingredients.
  5. Yum!! Great fall time beverage to serve! It was a little rainy yesterday and this perked my afternoon right up! I didn't have ground cloves so used 3 whole cloves and simmered a little longer. Loved the spiced flavor of the OJ. This would be perfect on cold winter nights, maybe with a dash of whiskey, lol! Thanks!!


Newest update March 28, 2008; I am so grateful and excited. A wonderful, generous, kind anonymous person gifted me with PM and I can't wait to use all the features. Thank you! I might add a couple notes or links to my page here such as forums I frequent, fave searches, and helpful info. Update March 2008: I was given the opportunity to join my very first recipe swap (I added the banner below, thanks Um Safia) This swap was really fun, interesting, and helpful. Lots of great recipes to choose from and lots of exposure for my own. I thought I'd update this a bit. It's April of 2007 already (wow!) and I might have written the stuff below at least a year ago, and longer. I live in AZ, with a roommate and a nice boyfriend. My roommate has only tried my cooking once, but my bf, bless his heart, tries really hard to tolerate it, lol! He's a good cook in his own right, but me, I'm still a newbie cook at heart. I still enjoy 'zaar and sometimes spend hours and hours on here, as it's still friendly, helpful, and interesting. :) Also, this is late in saying, but I'm supposed to be on an IBS-safe diet consisting of no dairy, egg yolks, caffeine, red meat, too much fat, everything I love, etc.... so I'm working on it, it's taking me years and years, but I've incorporated this kind of diet into my other eating, and if my tummy gets mad at me, well, I only have me to blame. :/ I've been married for almost two years and it's the first time I get to really cook for someone other than myself. (Hehe, I signed up with here not too long after I wrote this, now I'm separated - not because of my cooking lol - but surprisingly found myself again, acting as 'housewife'.) I'm not a great cook, but I do follow after my mother, who tends to estimte her ingredients and taste as she goes, but she and my sister are two of the best cooks I know. The best rule of thumb for seasonings is always add too little, you can always add more, but can't always take away if there's too much. I mostly try other recipes I find, but now and then experiment with whatever I have available if I can't get to the store or am broke, and sometimes come up with pretty good recipes. I also have a hard time cooking usually, it takes me longer than most people as I am legally blind and have no depth perception so sometimes it's hard for me to measure and prepare food. Any of the recipes I post might be estimated unless otherwise stated. Sorry for the inconvenience. :) I found this place doing one of my recipe searches. It looks like a fun place to get recipes. Take care all and happy cooking! :) <a href="¤t=curriedcurrajongs.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Helpful Link for Cookbook help:
