Orange Iced Tea



I have some fresh orange at home and want to taste something chilled, so I tried orange iced tea and shared this recipe with my readers. Look tasty and refreshing and its sunshine color attracts you anytime. You can prepare this drink anytime in summer season for you and your love ones. Zest is a food ingredient that is prepared by scraping or cutting from the outer, colorful skin of unwaxed citrus fruits such as lemon, orange, citron, and lime. Zest is used to add flavor to foods.

Review on Dunkin' Donuts @ CP, New Delhi


Dunkin' Donut first started in 1950 in Quincy Massachusetts in the U.S.A. Today Dunkin Donuts can be found in 30 countries worldwide. At Dunkin' Donuts India, you can enjoy a wide section of donuts, sandwiches, coffee and more beverages that will have you slippin & slurpin & gorgin & more. Generally People thoughts Dunkin Donuts means donuts and coffee. Now Dunkin' Donuts comes with new menus and renovation of complete outlet.




On 9 Dec 2014, Dunkin Donuts takes a step forward and arrange the relaunch event @ Connaught place, New Delhi. I already visited DD with my friends for especially donuts but now they offer more than coffee, donuts and sandwiches. Now DD adds burgers, wraps and more variation in beverages and donuts which are the highlights of this launch. The agenda behind this relaunch to aware the foodie with new flavors and variations. As per my opinion, it’s a budget friendly place where you can spend the good time with love ones in affordable prices.


On that day, i get the chance to meet Mr. Dev and DD Chef Peter and Chef Felick, all did really fantastic work on makeover. After met with each other, we were tried lots of eatables and beverages with other foodies who also invited.



First we were tried espresso shot, it’s quite strong and one of the best coffee beans was used. After that Stirr Accino, its look really attractive in tall glass in three color layer of coffee and if you want to sip that you have to stir continuously.


Jamaican Rum Almond is creamy texture drink with flavor of Jamaican rum and almonds. Jamaican rum is not alcohol, just flavor of rum.


In DD, they offer iced tea with three variations i.e. classic lemon, green tea and spiked tea. Spiked Iced tea is fused with some Indian spices includes cloves, cinnamon, black peppers, star anise and nutmeg and serves with lemon wedges and lots of ices. Personally i like green iced tea with perfect flavors and sweetness.


Now time to taste some eatables, first we tried wraps; those are so spicy in taste called wicked wraps available in veg and non-veg both. I tried veg one which prepared with multigrain wrap, baked kasoori paneer, raw mango relish, jalapenos' and chipotle sauce. Raw mango relish is awesome in taste.


After that some burgers were served, first we tried Naughty Lucy burger which made with molten cheese filled with veg patty and collab with chipotle sauce, jalapeno and raw mango relish. 


Second one is Brute Tough Guy Burger Veg made with kidney bean based patty, harissa sauce and chili mayo. 




Now time to taste some sweets which are the specialty of DD, we tried 6 variations in donuts that’s breakup party ├ęclair, it’s a mistake, ugly strawberry, no more blue, stuck on you and death by chocolate. Personally i love death by chocolate and its mistake donuts both. It’s a mistake donut made with white chocolate, guava and chili flakes.


It was completely good experience with Dunkin Donuts and get the chance to meet with other foodies. We had taken loads of pictures on that day. In the end we get mojo kit and want to say big thanks to DD team for invited me.

PS: it’s completely my opinion which I felt, not paid review.
