Spiced Mandarin Orange Juice

Happy Chinese New Year! May the year of the Tiger bring you good blessings. Happy Valentine’s Day too!

I know the most obvious thing to do is to peel the oranges and eat them, but I get bored of doing that after some time.

  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.
