Recipe: Fruit Nectar

The term nectar was used by the early Greeks to mean the drink of the gods. Now it is often applied to an especially delightful beverage. Pineapple combined with lemon is always good, but when orange juice is also used, an excellent nectar is the result.

(Sufficient to Serve Eight)

  •  3/4 c. sugar
  •  2 c. water
  •  1-1/2 c. orange juice
  •  1 c. pineapple juice
  •  1/2 c. lemon juice

Boil the sugar and water for 2 minutes and then cool. Add the fruit juices, strain, and serve over cracked ice.
