Lukewarm Orange Juice?

United States
January 24, 2016 4:16am CST
I am a bit odd when it comes to orange juice. I pour orange juice and then have to let it sit for a few minutes. It tastes better when it is not iced cold. I haven't tried this with freshly squeezed orange juice, just the "not from concentrate" concentrated stuff. AM I alone in this or do you do this with orange juice or other juices?

That depends on the weather. If it is a very hot day, I prefer to have cold drink. If it is a normal windy and cool day, room temperature orange juice will be ok for me.

I don't know why but I just can't seem to consume ice cold orange juice. It just does not taste as good to me.

No, I prefer soft drinks cold - but due to being stored in the fridge, not because of ice cubes, which I often avoid.

Soft drinks I do like cold. I put my canned sodas in the fridge. Ice just tends to melt the drink before I get around to drinking it all.

@ScribbledAdNauseum Ice cubes in pubs and restaurants can sometimes be a health risk.

@asfarasiknow unfiltered water? Chemical contamination? I haven't actually thought about this before.

I must drink my orange juice cold from the fridge or with some ice. Never room Temperate or warm lol.

It's just way too cold for me straight from the fridge, and as crazy as it sounds? It doesn't taste good so cold.

I don't really drink much juice at all actually. I've recently given up soda and am mostly drinking water with lemon.. which I prefer to drink cold!

Yes warm water with lemon would not be good at all. I need to give up sodas. I was doing so well for a long while but then recently started buying the small cans of sodas.

@ScribbledAdNauseum It's tough because sometimes you just want something with a little flavor instead of water but there aren't many choices if you're not a juice drinker.

I like both cold and warm orange juice, but I prefer cold more especially in the summertime when it's really heating up!

If it's too cold it's just not as refreshing to me, and I have a bit of a sensitivity in my gums that doesn't help matters either. I don't drink much orange juice in the summer for some reason.

I really don't like to drink anything that is ice cold, my teeth are too sensitive to temperature.

I can drink beverages cold but ice cream and frozen yogurts can be difficult to consume.

I don't think I could do the lukewarm thing for my orange juice.

lukewarm was probably the wrong word for it. Room temperature is a better word for it.

I rarely drink anything, ice cold. When I am offered water in a restaurant, I always request, No ice.

They do tend to over do the ice in restaurants. At restaurants, however, I do prefer ice in my beverages.

Orange juice definitely tastes better at room temperature (not sure about 'lukewarm', though). If you are squeezing oranges, you get more juice from them if they are warm.

Lukewarm wasn't the exact word I wanted to use for it. Yes, room temperature is better. I've not freshly squeezed an orange for juice in years.

Luke warm orange juice? Nah-Uh, I prefer it chilled. :P
• United States

Lukewarm may not have been the right word for it. I mean slightly less than lukewarm but not too cold either.

Well we have oranges in season so i feel better eat them fresh.

It is definitely better to eat oranges when they are still fresh. Orange juice (especially which is already treated with perservatives) is a little different. Probably not so much safe though.

I prefer concentrated stuff chilled; but I have tried warm freshly squeezed orange juice and I liked it...
