CITRUS VODKA SPRITZER

There's something so refreshing when citrus fruit juices and fresh mint are paired...

I swear I can instantly relax with this cocktail in hand!  A great cocktail takes a little more time to craft than pouring a glass of wine or cracking open a beer, but in my opinion all effort of squeezing fresh juice from oranges, lemons and limes is worth it as soon as you take your first sip of your very own crafted cocktail.  By adding the fresh mint, you can teleport in your mind to any place you want to be.  Maybe it's just me, but the power of a cocktail far surpasses that of a glass of wine or a can of beer.  This drink is so natural and light, it won't fill you up like other drinks, so sit back and have a couple of these ones!

How To Make It: (Serves 4)

  • 1/4 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 2 Cups 100% Orange Juice (or Freshly Squeezed)
  • 1/4 Cup Hudson & Lee Honey Simple Syrup
  • 1 Cup Vodka (we like Tito's)
  • 1 Cup Sparkling Water (we like San Pellegrino)
  • Fresh Mint Leaves for Garnish
  • Thinly Sliced Lime

Add lemon, lime, orange juices and honey syrup and vodka to a cocktail shaker and shake for 30 seconds.  Add ice and thinly sliced orange and lime slices to each glass then pour mixture into each glass leaving space for 1/4 cup of sparkling water.  Top each glass with a 1/4 cup sparkling water and stir.  Add a mint sprig to each glass and enjoy!
