The Fizzy Orange Crush, Cunningham's( Dave Seel / Baltimore Sun / June 10, 2014 )
How to make the Fizzy Orange Crush
2 1/4 oz. orange-infused vodka*
1 oz. Easy Orange Cordial**
3 oz. freshly squeezed, finely strained orange juice
1/2 oz. Sprite or other lemon-lime soda
1 dash Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6
1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters
At Cunningham's, all ingredients are combined in a champagne bottle and then carbonated and served over crushed ice.
This can be replicated at home with an iSi Soda Siphon or an old-fashioned seltzer bottle.
Alternately, the drink can be made without carbonation. Garnish with a thickly cut orange twist.
*Orange-infused vodka: Add 80 grams of finely zested orange peel to a 750ml bottle of vodka. Infuse for 48 hours or until desired flavor is achieved.
**Easy Orange Cordial: Combine equal parts freshly squeezed orange juice and raw sugar. Add orange zest, ginger, allspice and cloves, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, let cool, finely strain and bottle.
