Your Original Summer Crush

If Maryland summers were a drink, they would be an orange crush.

We join Erin, a bartender at Pusser’s in Annapolis, who shows us how to create their version of this taste of summer sunshine.

Orange Crush

  • 1/2 shot Triple Sec (omit for a skinny crush)
  • 1 shot Smirnoff Orange Vodka (plus 1/2 shot for a skinny crush)
  • fresh orange juice
  • Sprite (substitute soda water for a skinny crush)
  • orange slice garnish

Fill glass with ice. In a shaker, combine spirits and juice. Pour into glass and finish with soda. Garnish with orange slice.

There are lots of variations on the classic crush. Find more here.
