This bright, crisp citrus cocktail is like sunshine in a cup. The ingredients are incredibly simple, but the act of sugar-coating and grilling the oranges mixed into the drink and used as garnish elevates this summer drink. We’ve made these in a pitcher, but they’re just as easy to make individually as well.
Serves: 4 drinks
- 24 oz. of your favorite lemonade
- 8 oz. vodka
- 3 oz. triple sec
- 3 oranges
- ½ cup sugar
- Slice orange into wheels, then dip both sides of each wheel into sugar. Place on the grate and grill 2-3 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear.
- In a pitcher, add lemonade, vodka and triple sec, stirring together with all but 4 of the orange slices. Chill until cold.
- Add a large ice cube to each glass, pour in lemonade mixture, garnish with an orange wheel and enjoy!
