Part Orange Julius, part Screwdriver, and a hat-tip to a Mimosa is how I'd describe this fun and citrusy concoction. Homemade vanilla simple syrup adds sweetness and dimension, and we keep it Minnesotan with locally distilled Prairie Organic gin.
- 1 ½ Prairie Organic Gin
- 1 ½ oz Orange Juice
- ½ oz Vanilla Simple Syrup *
* To make vanilla simple syrup: combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of granulated white sugar in a saucepan, and heat until almost boiling, and sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, add 1 tsp of vanilla extract, and stir to combine. Cool and use immediately, or store in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Combine ingredients in an ice-filled Collins glass, and top with tonic water. Garnish with half an orange wheel.
