Fruit Nectar

The term nectar was used by the early Greeks to mean the drink of the gods. Now it is often applied to an especially delightful beverage. Pineapple combined with lemon is always good, but when orange juice is also used, an excellent nectar is the result.

Sufficient to serve eight.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups orange juice
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice


Boil the sugar and water for 2 minutes and then cool. Add the fruit juices, strain, and serve over cracked ice.
