This Winter Citrus Crush is a refreshing winter cocktail using all of the best winter citrus, vodka, a touch of lime juice, and orange liqueur! It's my take on the classic orange crush that I love so much, made even better with blood orange, grapefruit, and tangelo!
Fill a large glass with crushed ice. Add a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker. To the cocktail shaker, add the winter citrus juice, lime juice, simple syrup, vodka, and Grand Marnier. Shake for 20-30 seconds, then pour into your glass. Top with the lemon lime soda and stir to combine. Garnish with a slice of blood orange, grapefruit, and/or tangelo!
Combine the blood orange juice, tangelo juice, and grapefruit juice in a bowl. Stir to combine.
*I prefer Grand Marnier over other orange liqueurs, but Triple Sec or Cointreau will work here!
*To make simple syrup, boil 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar until dissolved (about 30 seconds to 1 minute). Cool, store in the fridge, and use in cocktails! This will make more than you need for the recipe.
*If you want to make these pitcher-style for a crowd, I'd measure all of the crush ingredients out for how many people you want to make them for, add everything to a pitcher, and chill the mixture in the fridge. When you're ready to serve, add the crushed ice, and serve! You'd need to probably double or triple the winter citrus juice too, depending on how many people you're making them for!
