Hold Summer in your cup with this adult-styled orange juice. 5 fresh ingredients, 5 slow days and you’re left with a cool, syrupy, refreshing beverage. Spend extra time in the grocery store looking for a vanilla bean, caster sugar, and 6 perfect oranges; using fresh elements will guarantee maximum sweetness and flavor absorbance of the vodka. Best served in a chilled highball glass with a few ice cubes, topped with a thin slice of orange and a few mint leaves.
