Simple Syrup:

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup hot water

Stir together till sugar is dissolved

 

1 Cup fresh Orange Juice / Blood Orange Juice

1/2 Cup Fresh Lime Juice or Fresh Pineapple Juice

1/2 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice

1 Cup Vodka (Optional)

1 Liter Club Soda

Slices of Lime, Orange, Lemon, Pineapple. A couple of Cherries for garnish

 

Combine the Juices in a tall pitcher. I use a 1 gallon iced tea jar.

Stir in vodka, club soda & simple syrup. Add ice. You may also put your ice in a plastic zip top bag so your beverage doesn’t get diluted. Stir till cold.

I like to do a crystallized ginger, salt, sugar rim to my glasses. Just crush the ginger & add kosher salt; 1 part + 1/2 part sugar to the crystallized ginger.

Pour on a plate, moisten the rim of your glass with a lemon or lime wedge.

Drop your slices into the glasses, add ice pour the citrus cooler over ice filling each glass.
