Orange Crush Cocktail
I remember loving Orange Crush soda as a kid. The carbonated beverage was one of my favorites growing up. This Orange Crust Cocktail gives you that same great orange, carbonated drink, but in a adults only variety. You will feel like a kid when you make it with Kool-aid powder, but it is an alcoholic beverage for adults.
Orange Crush Cocktail Ingredients
With just four ingredients, this cocktail is as easy to make as Kool-aid!
Ice: I prefer crushed ice, but use whatever ice you have on hand.
Vodka: Choose the brand of vodka you prefer for this drink.
Kool-aid: You will need just 1/2 a teaspoon of the orange kool-aid powder.
Sprite: The lemon-lime soda gives the beverage the carbonation to remind you of Orange Crush soda. Choose your favorite brand of lemon-line soda.
How to Make Orange Crush Cocktail
This may look like a kid’s drink, but it is definitely only for adults because of the vodka in the drink. I have the serving size as two drinks, so you may want to cut the amounts in half if making in two separate glasses. Or, just split the drink in half after you make it.
To make the cocktail, first, fill a glass with ice. Next, add the vodka and orange Kool-aid powder. Stir the powder in the vodka until it has completely dissolved. Finally, top with Sprite, or any lemon-lime soda. Serve and sip immediately.
