Your New Favorite Summer Cocktail: The Orange Crush


You guys, summer is right around the corner! If you’re in Texas like us…it’s already feeling like summer, so it was time to break out my favorite summer cocktail recipe - The Orange Crush! Don’t get me wrong, I am a die hard margarita gal, but when I had an orange crush for the first time, I knew it would be my new go-to summer adult beverage!

I had never tried or even heard of an orange crush until I went to Pennsylvania to meet Nick’s family for the first time. The Bare’s had this fancy orange squeezer and were cranking out orange crushes for everyone like it was their job! It tastes like an orange julius…but better, because well…vodka!

So whether you’re headed to a bbq, happy hour, or just hanging by the pool solo - say hello to your new favorite drink!

(makes 1 drink)

  • 1 shot of Vodka (we like to use Tito’s!)

  • 1 shot of Triple Sec

  • 1 orange

  • Diet Sprite Zero (it doesn’t have to be diet, but it’s a great low-calorie option!)

  • Orange squeezer (here’s an affordable one on Amazon!)


  1. Add ice to cup

  2. Squeeze juice out of orange, pour juice into cup

  3. Add in shot of vodka & triple sec

  4. Fill to the top with Diet Sprite Zero
