This classic and delicious vodka cocktail can be made with orange juice, grapefruit, or even blood oranges. A refreshing drink, and perfect for summertime.

Cooking tip: For a sweeter cocktail you can easily use fresh orange juice, but if a more dramatic cocktail is what you're seeking, try using blood oranges in place of the pink grapefruit. They are in season from November to April in the U.S.
