Orangina Replica
I love drinking orginia, but its expensive, so I decided to make my own.

I juiced a bag of tangerines, added corn syrup, sugar, and 3 tbls of Vanilla extract.

Added enough mineral water to make 2 1/2 gallons

Perfect. The vanilla gave it a "cream" flavor which was a pleasant surprise

Any idea how much total juice you collected?

digdan 04-03-2009 07:09 PM

I would say right under 2 quarts. It nearly filled up half a gallon.

My kids are going nuts and drinking it all way before my force carbonation can even set in

Thanks for posting this. I made a great soda based on your recipe, but I wanted to use some ginger and less sugar. Here's what I did for 1 liter:

-boiled one liter of water with a couple inches of sliced ginger & 3 tbsp of sugar
-when it cooled, I added juice from 3 tangerines and one lemon

The result was great.

How close is this to the original oringina?

Pretty close,

The orangina label says it contains lemons, oranges, and mandarins, but this recipe only uses mandarins (and I used oranges in mine actually).

In hindsight, I would juice a bag of mandarins and a couple lemons, mix it into real orange juice (not that sunny d crap), and mix the orange juice with mineral water and sweeten to taste. After its carbonated I'm sure it will be a nearly exact to the original product.

when using real juice does it settle out? I want to keg some and worry about it settiling. The oragne extract I made isn't that great...

Filtering out the pulp from the juice will prevent any settling
