Orange juice drink

I need some help. I am having the my lady friend over for brunch and need a drink to serve besides coffee and tea. I had an orange juice drink at a bed & breakfast a couple of years ago that was delicious. Does any one have any ideas?

Could it have been a mimosa? Those are quite common to serve at brunch and whatnot. It's basically just champaigne and orange juice... really quite tasty.

No, I think it had banana in it. It was almost like a smoothie, but more orange juice like.

I don't know about the banana part - sounds like a smoothie - but orange julius is really good and a recipe is easy to find on the web

I forgot about Orange Julius!! I used to get them in the mall when I was little. My aunt started making them for me because I was so picky about things and I loved this. I don't remember everything, but, I do remember the egg and most of the recipes that I googled, didn't have it. This one does. I'm going to make this one myself and let my boys and dh try it out.

I worked at Orange Julius years ago. From what I remember the recipe was fresh squeezes OJ, powdered egg whites, simple syrup, and ice, all blended together.

I remember the oranges. They had oranges all over the machine. I'll stick to the concentrate, it's easier

I don't use the egg in mine. Also on the same page TG posted, there are other recipes for juice drinks - quite a few. BTW I make mimosas with orange juice and cranberry gingerale - they are delicious and no bad stuff.

This is not a very exciting drink, but sometimes I find OJ a little too sweet. I will cut it in half with seltzer. It adds some bubbles and tastes really good.
