Orangeade by the Quart Quickly

Recorded March 18, 2006. March! Already warm! Less acidic than straight juice but thirst quenching.
12 oz cold water
4 oz ice
2 T sugar
2 c prepared orange juice (Simply Orange™ is hard to beat)
To a one-quart plastic bottle, add the water and the sugar, shake until dissolved, add ice, and shake until it's melted. Bring to the 4-cup mark with orange juice, and mix gently by inversion (to reduce loss of vitamin C by oxidation). Chill. Serves 2 to 3.
