Another attempt at a refreshing summer drink that would also help the colds we were all fighting that August in Georgia. From August 25, 2012, from a recipe posted on Facebook by New Amsterdam to celebrate the release of their new (at the time) pineapple flavored vodka. I can’t find it now on their website to link to, but it’s probably there somewhere in the archives of Facebook from 4 years ago.
1 1/2 ounces vodka or gin
1 ounce orange juice
2 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
1 pinch ground ginger
dash of lemon juice
Combine all ingredients, shake vigorously, and strain over an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with an orange wheel or pineapple wedge.
We used gin, but I’m sure vodka would be just as good. And we skipped the garnish because I was tired and sick. But it was delicious, refreshing, and FULL of vitamin C!
