Orange Summer Cooler

Did you know? If an orange is not picked, it can stay on the tree until the next season. Due to fluctuation in temperature in the entire season, the unpicked oranges can turn from green to orange and back to green again. And surprisingly the quality and flavour of the fruit remains intact. Interesting isn’t it!

Orange Summer Cooler
Following preparation will serve 2.

Ingredients –
6-7 table spoons of orange squash
8-10 mint leaves
1 tea spoon of roasted cumin powder
One quarter inch ginger
1 table spoon salt
1 tea spoon black salt (or may be just a little more)
3 table spoon sugar
3-4 cups of chilled water
Juice of half a lemon
Ice as required

Method –
Except water, ice and lemon juice, mix all the other ingredients in a blender and strain. Now add cold water and lemon juice in the squash mixture. After that you might just have to strain it once again. Fill two glasses with ice and now pour the mixture in the glass and serve. Its super easy and super quick to make. This summer, beat the heat with a Orange Summer Cooler.

Hope you like this drink. See you next time with another recipe, till then happy cooking! Cheers 🙂

Crumble the oreo biscuits and add it in the ice cream mixture along with rice cereals. Give it a good mix and pour it in a plastic container. Now, freeze it for 5-6 hours or overnight.

For topping you can use glazed cherries or colourful chocolate vermicelli anything of your choice. Since everyone in my family is crazy for oreo biscuit, so I preferred to top it up with the biscuits.

Cheese and Corn Open Sandwich

Did you know? “Sandwich” the most common fast food item got its name during the late hours one night in 1762 in London. John Montagu, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich (A town in the country of Kent, England), was playing cards. He was too engrossed in the game that he didn’t want to stop, even for food. Thus, he ordered a waiter to bring him roast beef between two slices of bread. This made it easy for him to handle both, food as well as his game. This small but interesting incident gave birth to a very popular food item of world – sandwich.
