So….are you ready for the Big Game!?!? It’s just a few days away! I have to admit. Football season around here has been extremely unexciting this year. Because….Packers. And Aaron Rogers. And not even making it to the playoffs.
Not that I’m ever a huge football fan….but most years I’m at least interested. This year, though? Not so much.
But. That won’t stop me from watching the Super Bowl! If by watching….we can agree that we all really mean hanging out with friends and eating and drinking All. The. Things.
Yep, that’s right. We plan to have some friends over, because why not!? It’s the middle of winter and we’re ALL looking for fun things to do. Especially when its’ Super Bowl Sunday. Am I right?
On our menu? Jalapeño Popper Wonton Cups (a game day MUST), Bacon Cheddar Ranch Pinwheels (too easy NOT to make), Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken (one of our long time favorites), and….of course….these Ginger Orange Vodka cocktails!
I’m a HUGE fan of a good press, and I love the fact that the possibilities for them are endless! One of my favorites is this Grapefruit Vodka Press, and of course the basic Vodka Press is always good. But there’s something about this Ginger Orange Vodka Press that’s, well, seriously amazing!
What is a Vodka Press?
A vodka press is a mixed drink made with vodka, soda water (or tonic), and 7-up or Sprite. It’s typically served with a lime wedge.
How do you make a Vodka Press?
- Fill a highball glass with ice.
- Add equal parts vodka, soda water, and 7-up or Sprite. (*amounts can be adjusted according to your preferences)
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
I had my first vodka press at dinner, during a blogging conference, a few years back. And as soon as I tasted it I couldn’t help but wonder WHY it had taken me so long to discover.
And ever since then, well, I’ve been absolutely loving them. They’re light, refreshing, and not too sweet. And…they can easily be adjusted in terms of strength, sweetness, and even flavors!
This Ginger Orange Vodka Press is a great example. Made with vodka, citrus sparkling water, ginger ale, and orange juice, it’s definitely an unexpected, yet completely delicious, twist on the classic vodka press. And you’d never guess it’s made with just 4 ingredients!
