This refreshing Orange Crush Cocktail is the perfect boozy beverage to wet your whistle this summer!
You know what I haven’t shared in quite a while guys? A cocktail! So today we’re toasting to Thirsty Thursday with my new favorite little libation for Summer 2018, this refreshing Orange Crush Cocktail!
Tom and I got together with a bunch of our friends at the beach a few weeks ago for the Memorial Day holiday and the cocktail of choice was an Orange Crush. I must be living under a rock because I had never heard of an Orange Crush.
Let’s just say, I’ve come out from under my rock and joined the party. Once again, my good friends have got me covered! Seriously, this fruity little number will be on repeat all summer long at the BHK. It’s super citrusy and the perfect thirst quencher for summer cocktailing!
A Few Cook’s Notes for Orange Crush Cocktail recipe:
I highly recommend freshly squeezing oranges for this recipe. So much better than bottled from the market.
The brand of orange liqueur I use for the recipe is Cointreau. Cointreau is a triple sec.
I used regular vodka for this recipe because I thought it had enough orange flavor with the Cointreau and the orange juice. You could also substitute an orange flavored vodka for more intense orange flavor. (Pick your poison…lol!)
And always remember….drink responsibly.
Hope y’all have an awesome weekend! Cheers to Thirsty Thursday! Enjoy!
