Orange Juice Tereré: Perfect for Brunch

Tere… what? Tereré is basically yerba maté, enjoyed cold. In the hot South-American summers, maté is often drunk cold. Locals can’t live a day without their beloved Maté. However, a warm tea-like drink is not always your first choice when it’s 35 °C out. So, they fill their Maté with a glass of super cold ice water. And there you have your iced-maté: Tereré.

This recipe takes cold Maté a step further! Cold maté is delicious when it’s warm. However, Tereré with ice-cold, freshly squeezed orange juice is even more delicious!
