Agent Orange

Day 85

Agent Orange
4 shots out of 5

I'm going to go ahead and admit it right now.  I'm partial to screwdrivers.....I am.  It was (if I remember correctly) my first cocktail that I had, liked and continued having for the next couple years.  Now that I'm thinking about how long ago it's making me realize how many years have passed since I've been in high school......onto tonight's cocktail!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  I truly do enjoy screwdrivers.  This cocktail, the Agent Orange, adds a little bit more to that flavor.  I think I just might start having either a screwdriver or an Agent Orange every now and again.  It's actually bringing back some good, fun memories and I'm enjoying them as much as I'm enjoying sipping my cocktail.  If you like screwdrivers, give Agent Orange a try.  The Grand Marnier adds a little something to the cocktail, but definitely does not take anything away from it.  If some of your favorite memories don't revolve around screwdrivers, you may not enjoy it as much as I am right now, haha.  Hopefully you will enjoy it some though.

Here is the recipe for Agent Orange:

  • 1 1/4 shots vodka
  • 1/2 shot Grand Marnier
  • 3 shots orange juice
In a tall glass, fill 3/4 with ice and add vodka, Grand Marnier and orange juice (add more vodka if you like it to taste a bit more vodkaey).  Stir up your cocktail real well, sit back and enjoy!

Here's to a blast from the past with a twist!  Hope you all find or remember about that cocktail that resembles good times for you.
