How to Make Oriole Nectar

How to Make  Oriole Nectar?

The simple answer to the question of how to make oriole nectar is:

Add 1 part regular white sugar to 6 parts water. Place in a pan and bring the oriole nectar to a boil.  Let the nectar cool to room temperature before placing it in the oriole feeder.

 OR….  Purchase a Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker® and make your oriole nectar in under 30 Seconds!

Why did we create the Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker ®?

The quick answer… Boiling water to make nectar is fun and easy the 1st or 2nd time, but by the beginning of summer it turns out to be just another chore. Around summertime people just stop feeding both Orioles and Hummingbirds. It’s too much work and really who has an hour to kill? We created the Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker® to save time!

Fast /Easy/No-Mess/Leak-Proof/Perfect Oriole Nectar Every Time

Perfect oriole nectar every time in under 30 seconds! It’s impossible to mess up the mix!


You won’t have to remember, call a wild bird store, google results, or ask a friend on Facebook about “how to make  oriole nectar” ever again.

Simply choose a side, either the hummingbird side or the oriole side which is imprinted on the cup. Then put regular white sugar to “sugar line” and then add cold tap water to “cold tap water line” and shake for 30 seconds. The nectar will be ready before you get out the back door.

NOTE: When using either the Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker® or making nectar the old fashion way by boiling the mixture remember use regular white sugar. NEVER USE: Sugar in the Raw, Brown Sugar, Honey, or even Powered Sugar. ONLY USE: Plain white sugar for your hummingbird or oriole nectar mix.


Besides being able to mix the oriole nectar in under 1 minute using the original Sugar Shaker Nectar Maker® you DON’T have to boil the water!

Now that should save you 10 minutes on the getting the water to boil and another 60 minutes getting the nectar to cool down to room temperature so you can use it.
