Summer is a time to relax and enjoy the breezes, take in the sunshine, go on walks and have family picnics. When you’re relaxing with friends and want something simple to share, try this simple recipe and it’s sure to please the taste buds and eyes.
1 1/2 oz of Orange flavored Vodka (my personal favorite is Smirnoff)
1 1/2 oz orange juice
Drizzle of grenadine
Add the vodka and orange juice to a shaker. Add a couple of cubes of ice or a little crushed ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass or low ball glass. Add a little grenadine and watch as the sun sets in your glass. Keep it light on the grenadine, as it can over sweeten the drink. This drink can be made in a virgin style by omitting the vodka. It will be just as fun for kids as it is for adults!
This simple layered drink offers up a sweet but powerful kick for you to share with your friends and guests at any summer soiree’ or simple dinner party.
Enjoy and salute′
