An Orange Medley

Are you one of those who don't like Baskin & Robbins icecreams? Or do you always go there and order the chocolate chip flavor? Next time you pass by a B&R counter, I suggest you look for something called Orange Tango. There's a good chance you won't find it, but buy a scoop instantly if you do. Make that a double scoop; for you are looking at the only sorbet in this icecream store. It's light, it's fresh and it has a flavor that can make you an instant fan. Specially if orange was on your mind because it is the color of the month at FIC.

Aparna and Harini, are you beginning to fear I am shortchanging you and sending in a Baskin & Robbins icecream as my FIC entry. Banish the thoughts, for this is just a prelude to two symphonies coming your way.



There's a healthy option and an unhealthy option. Let's pick the healthy one first. It's called London Dreams and I have no idea why. I noted this recipe many eons ago, I guess from a magazine. But here I have it in a notebook and it says London Dream. So dream on....blend 1/2 glass each of chilled orange juice and sweet lime juice with 2 tbsp orange sorbet. Sprinkle a pinch of black (rock) salt and your drink is ready.

Now the glamorous, unhealthy one is just one of my icecream sodas. Place a large scoop of orange sorbet at the bottom of a glass. Pour plain soda (sparkling water) on top of the sorbet very carefully - this will fizz and can easily spill over. Don't you think it looks cute.

I don't mind being short changed Simran, if this is the result though Harini might not agree with me as far FIC is concerned.:D
Both versions sound excellent. Must check out BR sometime soon.
Thanks for sending this in for FIC Orange.
