When Pete and I were in New York last week (OMG- how could that have only been last week?!!) we were walking through SOHO and stumbled on a really awesome Mexican restaurant. Since we were in day drinking mode, we ordered a whole bunch of drinks to sample.

Mango, Coconut and Orange Vodka Crush

The one that completely floored me was a combo of coconut, mango and orange mixed with my favorite booze (Vodka!!).

Mango, Coconut and Orange Vodka Crush

It is tropical and creamy and sweet (but not too sweet) and then has just the right hit of acid from the orange juice and lime juice. This is the perfect way to get an early kick start on your Summer weekend, don’t you think?! I am in LA right now with Pete, and am happily spending the weekend getting to spend a bunch of time with some of my favorite girlfriends (check instagram to see what we are up to all weekend!!)

    Can we just go ahead and turn this into sorbet? OMGeee this is the best summer combination of flavors!

  5. What a perfect drink for summer. And we’re sure to get all of our vitamins A and C with all the mango and orange juice in there! I’d also consider swapping out the vodka for tequila – that might be nice.
