Summer Drink Week: Boozy Orange Julius

When I was little, my dad and grandad would mow our lawns on a Saturday. My mom and I would wait until they were finishing up, then race into the kitchen and whip up these Orange Julius' for them. It's one of my favorite memories with my mom and after watching the latest season of Stranger Things I was reminded of those good times. If you haven't seen the show, the Orange Julius logo appears a bunch in the background at the local mall. So, here is a boozy version of a childhood favorite - xoxo darling, Hayden.

 Boozy Orange Julius Recipe: 

You'll Need:

- 1/2 can frozen orange juice concentrate
-1/2 cup water
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup vodka 
- 15 ice cubes 

Instructions:

1. Add all the ingredients into the blender.
2. Blend until you're content with the consistency, it should be more liquid-y than a smoothie.
3. Pour into glasses (makes about 2.5 glasses) and add some fun straws. 

Troubleshooting:

I don't add more sugar when I add more of the other ingredients because I don't like an overly sweet drink. But if you want it to taste more like the mall versions, you'll need to do more like a 1/2 cup of sugar.
