Ingredients

  • 2 cups ice cubes, or as needed

  • 2 fluid ounces orange-flavored vodka

  • 1 fluid ounce triple sec liqueur

  • 2 Valencia oranges, juiced

  • 1 splash lemon-lime soda (such as Sprite®)

  • 1 slice orange

Directions

  1. Fill a pint glass with ice cubes. Pour in orange-flavored vodka, triple sec, and orange juice, then top with lemon-lime soda. Mix well and garnish with orange slice.

Cook's Note:

Roll two room temperature Valencia oranges on the counter, applying light pressure, to loosen the juice from within each orange. Try not to break or crack the orange rind in the rolling process. Cut both oranges in half and place in a press or twist juicer. Two juiced Valencia oranges provides a yield of approximately 1 cup.
