Here are three tips for making it best:
- Use Good Vodka. There are only two ingredients so choose something mid- to high-shelf. We usually have Ketel One or Stoli in our kitchen, but use what you love.
- Try Fresh Orange Juice. If you have the time, fresh squeezed orange juice is best. It’s less sweet and tastes better than store-bought. If you need to use store-bought, choose a bottle that is 100% orange juice.
- Keep everything really cold. We keep the orange juice and vodka chilled then to make it, we stir well after pouring it over ice.
You will need:
1 cup vodka
1 1/2 cups orange juice
Divide ice between 4 glasses. Add vodka and orange juice to a pitcher and stir. Pour over ice. Alternatively, instead of using a pitcher, divide the vodka and orange juice between 4 glasses — Each glass should have 2 ounces of vodka and about 3 ounces of orange juice.
Stir well then place a few orange wedges into the middle of the glass.
