Today’s cocktail: The Orange Russian

Well, my friends, there’s really only one drink that can properly inaugurate this feature: the Orange Russian.

2 oz St. George California Citrus Vodka
1 oz St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur

Stir citrus vodka and coffee liqueur with ice until chilled, then strain into a fresh glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with an orange peel.

Editor’s note: As I am a tremendous lightweight, what I personally am drinking today is a tremendously lighter-weight adaptation of this, which I’m still tinkering with. But it involves a lot less vodka, a little straight cold-brew, a little simple syrup, and then bringing in a dash of 5x5 aged citrus bitters.
