Orange Crush Cocktail Recipe

Summer is in full swing, and the heat can sometimes get to be downright unbearable–especially toward the end of July and into August! Whether you’re enjoying a lazy afternoon by the pool and hosting a backyard BBQ bash, we’ve got the perfect cocktail to keep you cool.

Freshly squeezed orange juice, vodka, crushed ice, and a few other ingredients come together to make a refreshing libation called the Orange Crush. This tart, tangy, and slightly sweet beverage is delightful to sip on while enjoying the summertime sun (and accompanying heat wave).
