Mandarin Orange Juice

Spicy 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.

Happy Chinese New Year to those who are celebrating it! May the year of the Tiger bring you good blessings. Happy Valentine’s Day too!

Ingredients
(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)

Tools Needed
– Fruit juice extractor

Directions
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.
