Orange crush

I had the original orange crush near Assateague Island, in Ocean city, on a wonderful spring trip. It's a refreshing and delicious drink after a long day's beach walk.

1.5 oz Smirnoff orange twist
1.5 oz Triple sec
all juice from one orange
fill up with Sprite

Add ice to the cup and mix in all the liquids. Top off with Sprite. Drink!

Russian mule

A refreshing, spicy summer drink. Don't skip any of the ingredients, and get a real, flavorful, alcoholic ginger beer.

20 oz ginger beer
4 oz vodka
6 ice cubes
10 leaves fresh mint
1 tsp sugar
2 lime wedges

Add the ice and vodka to the cups.

Muddle the mint with the sugar. Squeeze in the fresh lime. Add to the cups. Pour in the ginger beer. Serve immediately.
