Awesome Autumn

The drink Awesome Autumn by the pool.
Awesome Autumn.

I managed a little drink mixing this week, and it resulted in an orange autumn drink. You’d probably agree that it’s quite similar to a Screwball with Vodka, but that was just how things turned out. Here’s what you need to try it yourself:

  • 6 cl (2 oz) Vodka
  • Lemon
  • Lime
  • Ice
  • Schweppes Orange

And here’s how you go about to mix an Awesome Autumn:

  1. Fill a long drink glass half way to the top with ice, preferably crushed, but cubes will do.
  2. Add the juice of 1/4 lemon
  3. Add the juice of 1/4 lime
  4. Add the vodka
  5. Top with Schweppes Orange
  6. Mix everything together, garnish with a slice of lemon and a slice of lime

I know the picture and the recipe doesn’t quite match, both the garnishing and most of the ice is missing, but it was so hot the ice melted almost immediately. Good times.
