Rinse it thoroughly and pour boiling water over it.

    Put the orange in the freezer for 2-3 hours so that it freezes. Then pull it out and let it heat up at room temperature so that it can be easily sliced. Why freeze an orange? After defrosting, there will be more juice from it and the bitterness that comes from the peel will go away.

    To quickly cool down, add a few ice cubes to the glass with the drink. Such a drink is stored for a day at room temperature. But he drinks much faster. Have a nice treat!

Instead of citric acid, you can add a little lemon juice.

To make the sugar dissolve faster, you can first add it to a small amount of warm water, stir and then add it to the drink with the remaining amount of water.

Instead of sugar, you can use a sweetener.

For cooking, it is better to use filtered or bottled water that is neutral to taste. If you use tap water, keep in mind that it can give the dish an unpleasant characteristic taste.
