Experience a ‘tangy’ twist with orange-infused treats

If you are a fan of citrus fruits, you have undoubtedly eaten a lot of oranges. The spherical,

orange coloured citrus fruits have potential health benefits. But have you ever wondered

where did orange originate?

Known for their vitamin C content, orange trees originated in China thousands of years ago.

These nutrient-dense powerhouses are now produced in many parts of the world, including

Spain, Mexico and the United States.

Oranges come in a variety of shapes and sizes – some are sweet while others are sour. Along

with multiple health benefits, which include prevention of diseases and reducing

inflammation, oranges lend themselves easily to a wide variety of dishes, from desserts and

pies to kebabs and curries. Let’s see how some of the renowned eateries have introduced this

popular citrus fruit into their menu!

Potboiler Coffee House, Kolkata:

Located at Southern Avenue, Potboiler Cafe is an eye-catcher amongst the youngsters. The

“At Potboiler, we have always tried to add a unique touch to our dishes, and we have been

successful in doing so. In the winter months, as we all go ga-ga over that one single fruit –

orange, we decided to treat our guests with something special. Apart from our winter classics,

we have introduced an orange-infused drink – The Orange Palace. Firstly, I would like to remind

you that at Potboiler, we have always highlighted our coffees in the best possible way. So, the

Orange Palace is the perfect cup of espresso with cinnamon, complementing the orange juice.
