Friday Happy Hour: Agent Orange

When I was in my 20s, and you were at a wedding reception (and we're going to one this weekend…) and wanted to get a mixed drink, it was a screwdriver.  It was easy and tasty, but it hardly conveyed any sense of sophistication.  It's the default for a lot of folks that feel "on the spot" when having to come up with a mixed drink.

Well, I say…put down your screwdrivers!

Tonight’s Happy Hour drink is: Agent Orange

2 oz vodka
1 oz Grand Marnier
½ oz Patron citronage (or cointreau)
½ oz orange juice

Mix the ingredients together with ice.  Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass.  Smooth citrus flavor, with a remarkably small amount of actual orange juice (that's a veiled word of warning).

Happy Friday!!

  1. Okay, all these drinks you make look so good that I am tempted to have my hubby & I fly in for happy hour at your place. Question is… can you make a mean Shirley Temple for the kids?
