Mexican Orange Breezer

Mexican Orange Breezer

The oranges in the basket were literally begging me make use of them as after Ramadan finished , the value of these oranges got less but one thing was for sure , I wanted to try a different recipe with these special oranges …I had orange juice with green chili in it and loved it , two days back went to a small bakery near my house and had a lemon drink which had pineapple pieces and ginger in it ….that’s how this drink came into existence

I made this juice for a get together party for my niece Shabana and her hubby Fahad and was applauded for its taste …. both orange juice and pineapple pieces blended well , plus were complimented well with green chili and ginger , not to forget the soaked sabza that added extra taste to it ….Everyone loved it , best compliment was from Akhtar Bhai ,who said this drink was very refreshing and was the highlight of the dinner party …. my niece Rida said that this was best drink I have made till date …
