Orange and Strawberry Juice

Try this fruit beverage for a nice change from straight orange juice.  It looks lovely in the glass when it’s garnished with fresh fruit.  Add a little sparkle with a splash of club soda. Freeze some strawberries overnight and pop them in the drink just before serving for some edible ice cubes that won’t dilute your drink.
