summer refresher

Tom's Summer Refresher: To about one pint of water, add one teaspoon of blackstrap molasses and a dash of orange juice. Adjust the mixture to your taste. Just the thing after a street-festival day of hot sun, beer, and dancing in the street.

Blackstrap molasses is rich in iron, calcium, manganese, potassium, and copper. (Another great thing is to mix it with maple syrup and drizzle over fresh strawberries. Try it, you will not regret it.)

Orange juice, of course, is famous for it's vitamin C content, and also contains limonin and other other protective phytochemicals.
