GiOrangeade -- A recipe

A sinus inflammation always makes me crave oranges and ginger and something to drink. Sadly caffeine is out of my life so no more tea and therefore no more ginger tea. But, I decided to try something new. I am going to call it GiOrangeade = Ginger Orangeade. I tried two versions. First one I did not like that much. The second one I loved.

Version One of GiOrangeade:

Juice of 2 large navel oranges
1 cubic inch piece of ginger, peeled.

Cut the ginger into very thin slices
Boil it in 1/4 cup of water to make a sort of ginger tea.
Let it cool.
Pour it into freshly squeezed orange juice (dump some pulp in, if you like)
Mix and drink up!

Version Two of GiOrangeade (much simpler and much better):

Juice of 2 large navel oranges
1 cubic inch piece of ginger, peeled.

Smash the living daylights out of the ginger in a pestle and mortar.
Empty the contents of the pestle and mortar into the freshly squeezed orange juice.
Mix and drink up.
Munch on the mortal remains of the ginger at the end!

Enjoy. Your sinuses will thank you. And sorry, no pics. I drank up well before I even thought of making a post out of this!
