Saffron is an obvious addition to traditional coolers and milk-based drinks, but did you ever think of adding it to orange juice? Well, you are in for an extraordinary culinary surprise.

This absolutely unique drink combines fresh orange juice and saffron, resulting in a lovely sunshine orange colour and a rejuvenating flavour, which has the tang of orange and the innate richness of saffron, the golden spice.

Enjoy the Saffron Orange Drink nice and chilled to give your senses a refreshing spa-like experience. Orange and Papaya Smoothie , Melon Tango , Fruit Lollies and Orange and Pomegranate Drink are other refreshing combos with orange juice.

There is a very minor twist to this orange juice, yet it tastes amazing. The very little quantity of safforn plays a major role in altering the taste of the drink. It has a very strong flavour. Everyone in my family loved it.
