- ⅔ cup (170 ml)s orange juice
- 2 cups (500 ml) water
- ½ tsp (2.5 ml) CALCIUM LACTATE
- 1 sachet (2 g) SODIUM ALGINATE
- melon liqueur (midori)
- orange zest
In a bowl, dissolve CALCIUM LACTATE into orange juice. Pour mixture into small, demi-spherical molds and let sit in the freezer for 1 hour or until the spheres are frozen.
In a rectangular, flat-bottomed bowl and using a hand blender, dissolve SODIUM ALGINATE in water. Let sit for 15 minutes, then warm briefly in a microwave oven.
Unmold frozen orange spheres in alginate bath. Let sit for 3 minutes while gently stirring once in a while to prevent the spheres from touching.
Fill a medium-sized bowl with water. Using a slotted spoon, delicately collect the spheres and briefly rinse them in the water, then remove excess water from each sphere by applying a piece of paper towel on the bottom of the spoon. Reserve.
To serve, put each orange sphere in a tasting spoon. Add a dash of melon liqueur in each spoon and decorate with orange zest.
