Do you love the Valencia Orange Refresher that you have been able to get at your local upscale coffeehouse? You know the one I am talking about. It turns out that the customers of that upscale coffee chain are “devastated” that they are removing the popular iced drink from the menu. The Valencia Orange Refresher was discontinued this past month and there is an online petition asking the company to save the beverage.
There is no need to panic or to cry in your pillow at night over the decision to pull this popular refreshing drink from the menu. You can make your own homemade version of the Valencia Orange Refresher and it has never been easier. This copycat version only requires 3 simple ingredients.
Lemon Iced Tea
Fill a glass or mason jar with ice.
Pour orange juice to fill the glass 3/4 of the way full.
Fill the remaining 1/4 of the glass with lemon iced tea.
Add one teaspoon of sugar into the drink and mix it well with your spoon.
Optional: Add orange slices for garnish.

It is easy to make and much cheaper too!
