Is anyone ready for a TGIF cocktail for happy hour? Me too! Why does it feel like the clock is moving in s-l-o-w motion today? If you’re going to sit on the deck or just in your good ol’ easy chair after work today, this gorgeous drink is perfect for chillaxin’.
When I created this recipe I was trying to make a cocktail similar to and Orange Julius. Do you remember heading straight for the Orange Julius stand at the mall in the 1980s? Oh, wait, that might just be me? When you approached the counter to place your order you had to yell it over the blaring sound of the blenders behind the counter. Why oh why is Orange Julius gone? No worries, my Sunset Gold cocktail reminds you of those sweet flavors but has the tang from fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice.
If you don’t have vanilla rum, you could use regular rum or an orange-flavored liquor instead.
Kick off your work shoes, mix up this beauty in five minutes, and prepare to relax. Enjoy!
