Refreshing vodka “mimosa” for summer

A glass of Orange juice. Esperanto: Oranĝa suk...

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.
