We tend to have oranges/grapefruit lying around in the winter here. Am I the only one that craves citrus in the winter? I’m not sure what it is, maybe a taste of summer? I had some oranges I needed to use up so we are having agent orange cocktails tonight.
The agent orange is a mix of vodka, grand marnier, cointreau (or curacao), and fresh orange juice. It is super fast to make and has a fresh, light flavor. These definitely go down easy. I made mine ahead of time and put in my freezer in a mason jar to get really cold. I love doing that since the drinks are ice cold when you are ready to drink, and since they are mostly alcohol they don’t freeze.
Mix up a few of these to brighten up this time change weekend!
