Lemon Orange Crush Cocktail

July 24, 2020

Happy Friday all! I spent my whole day weeding and am SO sore! It is time for a well deserved Friday night cocktail!


This summer is such a strange one. Isn't it? I missing the beach in a big way! And my mom. My mom lives at the beach and we usually get to have a lot of beach time together during the summer. Covid has changed that, unfortunately, and I am missing it all! I miss my toes in the sand and the sound of the waves. I miss those gorgeous sunsets. I miss our happy hours together, sitting by the bay, listening to live music. I miss my mom. And I miss the cocktail that area is known for - the Orange Crush.


I call an Orange Crush "summer in a glass". It is the lightest and most refreshing drink ever! So tonight I am putting a spin on that cocktail and am whipping up a Lemon Orange Crush!


Now let's just hope that this Lemon Orange Crush crushes the pain in my back from weeding! Cheers!


Lemon Orange Crush Cocktail

Ingredients:

2 oz. orange vodka

1 oz. Triple Sec

Juice of half of a lemon

Juice of half of an orange

Sprite (or club soda)

Ice


Fill a glass with ice. Add the vodka, Triple Sec, lemon juice and orange juice to the glass. Top off the glass with Sprite and stir. If you like your cocktails not too sweet, top off your glass with club soda or seltzer water. Give it a stir and enjoy this refreshing "summertime in a glass"!





Gosh, do I miss the fresh beach air!

And drinking an Orange Crush by the water!

I will dream of the beach at home with this Lemon Orange Crush.


Happy Friday! Cheers to you all for a wonderful weekend!
