The temperature is supposed to go into the 80s this week. So my thoughts turned naturally to summer drinks. (Or maybe I was just thirsty?) Vodka and orange juice seemed like a simple solution and they my eye landed on the seltzer I had purchased to make matzo balls and chocolate egg creams. Thinking it would give it the same sparkle as vodka and champagne, I tried it. A drink was born:
1 shot Vodka
2 shots seltzer
1 cup Orange juice
fresh mint, to taste
Pour first the vodka, then the orange juice, and finally the seltzer into the glass.
Garnish with fresh mint.
Light and delicious.
