Jalapeño Orange Spritzer

Vodka
Drink: Jalapeño Orange Spritzer

The Jalapeño Orange Spritzer is like the perfect summer day: bright, with a little heat. This sunburst orange cocktail gets its heat from jalapeño infused vodka. The infused vodka works in harmony (not competition) with orange juice and soda water to create a cocktail worthy of your next summer celebration.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. vodka
  • 12 oz. orange juice
  • 4 oz. soda water
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper, sliced. Reserve a few slices for garnish.

Preparation

  1. Slice jalapeño pepper. If you want to keep the pepper flavor without adding too much heat, remove the seeds.
  2. Pour vodka into a container and add the jalapeño slices. Let sit for one day. The longer you let the jalapeños infuse, the stronger the spice level will be.
  3. Add 2 oz. of the jalapeño-infused vodka, and 3 oz. of orange juice into a shaker with ice. Shake well.
  4. Pour into a glass and top off with club soda.
  5. Add a jalapeño slice to garnish.
