Drink Recipes

As a new feature starting in 2011, we are featuring a special drink recipes.  We will concentrate on classic cocktails and new drink recipes.  Here we feature an original Orlando Spirits drink recipe:

Florida Sunshine

1 ounces Finlandia Grapefruit vodka
ounce Aperol
1 ounce orange juice (such as no-pulp Tropicana)
1 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Shake with ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and
pour with ice into an Old Fashioned Glass.

If you like grapefruit juice, you will love the Florida Sunshine cocktail.  This recipe was inspired by a drink called the Luce Del Sole which is included in a book called The Modern Mixologist by Tony Abou-Ganim with Mary Elizabeth Faulkner.  That recipe calls for fresh-squeezed orange juice and also adds honey syrup as a sweetener.  However, we like it better without any sweetener and think it works just as well with Tropicana.  By the way, Finlandia Grapefruit vodka is a key ingredient.  It is one of the best flavored vodkas out there (and is actually one of just of a handful of flavored vodkas that are worth buying).
