Orange squash can be made quickly at home using fresh oranges, it is a simple and easy beverage recipe. I made this squash with a sweet variety of oranges that we get in India, these oranges are very juicy. This orange squash is better than the squash that we get at stores. Depending on the sweetness of the oranges you can increase or decrease the amount of sugar. I used organic unrefined cane sugar but you can also use regular sugar.

Orange squash is a preservative fruit drink. I added a preservative to this squash, potassium metabisulphite. As if you don’t add the preservative it will get spoiled soon. I also added saffron to this squash but you can skip it easily. Use a good quality glass bottle or jar to store this squash.
