You'll need to make an orange syrup before you start this recipe. Cool it down in a jug in the fridge.
Orange Syrup
  • 250 gm / 1 cup sugar
  • 250 ml /1 cup orange juice ( 1-2 oranges freshly squeezed)
For the extra delicious rest
  • 250 ml / 1 cup vodka
  • 2 cups crushed ice
  • 100 ml orange liqueur
  • soda to top up ( you'll need about 500 ml- I used my SodaStream)
  • 4 strawberries, ½ an orange sliced, 2 sprigs of mint
Make the orange syrup by mixing the orange juice and sugar in a small pot and heating until the sugar has only just dissolved. Pour into a jug and put in the fridge to cool.
  1. Cut the fruit and put into a large jug with the crushed ice. (Crushed ice makes ALL the difference. Crush the ice by putting it in a zip lock - sealed plastic bag, and hitting it with a rolling pin)
  2. Add the orange liqueur, vodka and cooled orange syrup then top up with soda.
  3. Then give everyone a little glass. Cheers
Make this with any liqueurs or alcohol you like. You could substitute gin and lemon syrup or perhaps Bacardi and a splash of coconut liqueur.
