Mandarin Orange Juice
This is a simple recipe for using up the extra mandarin oranges that may be lying around after the new year visitings. I know most people love to just peel the oranges and eat them, but I get bored of eating them after some time. Spicy mandarin orange juice? I have seen Tabasco sauce being added to cocktails a lot so I thought, why not make my orange juice slightly spicy for the extra kick? I also used a lemongrass stalk as a stirrer so that there will be a mild lemongrass scent as the juice is being stirred.

(Serves 1; fills a small glass about 200ml)
- 3 mandarin oranges, peeled (use more oranges if you want more juice)
- 1/2 lemongrass stalk
- Tabasco sauce (for mild spiciness; optional)
- Fruit juice extractor
1. Make slits all over the lemongrass. If you want more aroma, you can dip it in hot water for 10 seconds.
2. Blend oranges in a fruit juice extractor. Add Tabasco sauce to taste (I added 6 drops). Garnish with the lemongrass stirrer and add ice cubes if desired.
