Summer Splash with Orange Juice Ice Cubes (made Three Ways)

By  | 

Wow! We had such a great response to our Jalapeño Lemonades (made three different ways), that we’re back with another one of our favorite drinks.

And of course we’re sharing three ways to make it.

Whether you have a yard, deck, rooftop or fire escape, enjoying a cold drink on a hot day is one of summer’s greatest pleasures. And Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice is the perfect addition to spruce up your summer drinks.

WE ONLY USE FLORIDA’S NATURAL®

Our entire lives seemed to turn upside down last March, but one thing that hasn’t changed over the last few months is our family’s love of Florida’s Natural. We’ve been die-hard fans for years, and we still are!

It’s made from 100 percent real Florida oranges, and one 8-ounce glass provides your daily recommended dose of Vitamin C. And we’re all about Vitamin C right now.

YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE THESE SUMMER SPLASH DRINKS

These drinks really do make you feel like you have all the flavors of summer splashing in your mouth. They’re sweet and tangy with the perfect hint of orange juice thanks to ice cubes made from Florida’s Natural.

You can choose to make three versions:

Summer Splash Mocktail

Summer Splash Cocktail

Summer Splash Slushie

All three of them will help you feel like you’re living your best life this summer (even if the pandemic cancelled your plans).

How to Make a Summer Splash Mocktail

First, you’ll want to fill an ice-cube tray with Florida’s Natural. Freeze overnight (or until ice cubes are formed).

Then, place two orange juice ice cubes into a small glass. Add one cup of sparkling water, two tablespoons of Grenadine Syrup and two teaspoons of Vanilla Syrup (optional). Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

How to Make a Summer Splash Cocktail

To make the cocktail version, follow the same instructions as the mocktail. Add up to 1/4 cup of Tequila, give it a stir, and enjoy!

How to Make a Summer Splash Slushie

Is there anything better than a slushie on a hot summer day?

If you don’t want to take the time to make orange juice ice cubes, the slushie version is for you.

Combine 1/2 cup of Florida’s Natural, one cup of sparkling water, up to 1/4 cup of Tequila, two tablespoons of Grenadine Syrup and two teaspoons of Vanilla Syrup (optional) to a blender. Add in a scoop of ice and blend until desired “slushiness” is reached.

Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and enjoy!

THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENT IS FLORIDA’S NATURAL® ORANGE JUICE

As I already mentioned, we’re completely and totally obsessed with Florida’s Natural Orange Juice. It’s made from one simple ingredient — Florida oranges. And only Florida oranges. No water, sugar or preservatives are added, making for a straight-from-the-grove taste.
