When the temperature soars, nothing compares to an ice-cold cocktail to beat the heat.

We asked Ketel One Vodka brand ambassador Brett Goering for his take on the ultimate summertime mixed drink. His go-to? An Oranje Smash—a fruity concoction that’s like sunshine in a glass.

The bright tartness of lemon, the sweetness of navel oranges, and the tang of orange bitters work brilliantly together. See for yourself.
