Granny's Punch It Up Orange Juice

Ever come across something that is good for you but you just hate it?  That's how I always felt about oranges or orange juice.  I've been at home this week taking care of myself per the Doctor.  When the weather does a lot of changing, sometimes it is difficult for the body to keep up without the proper nutrients that help ward off some of the illnesses that come during this time.
One of the things my Grandparents used to do when I was a little girl was to fill us up with oranges or orange juice.  I never liked them.  They thought it strange that I would make such faces trying to get it in while everyone else wanted more.

Last night as I was trying to force myself to get the juice in, I went into the lab (my kitchen) to concoct a recipe to make it go down a little more pleasant.  It was a success and I am ready to share it with you.  Being that I was on a restriction from going anywhere by the Doctor, I only used the fruit that was left in the house.  Feel free to use what you want as much as you want.  Make this recipe to your liking.

Granny's Punch It Up Orange Juice

Large pitcher (mine is 3L)
2 cans of frozen orange juice

Cold water
Fruit of choice
Ginger Ale

Put content of both cans of frozen orange juice into picture.  Add the amount of cold water as directed by can.  Stir until well blended.  Add Ginger Ale to your liking.  Add fruit of choice.

I left the fruit in the container until the end so that I could enjoy them as a delightful dessert when the picture was empty.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Much love,
Decided to throw in the remainder of the fruit not used in the glass
