Recipe: 4 Orange Sugar 'n' Spice Sidecar

A few years ago, agricultural officials tried to chop down every backyard orange tree in the state. Yours probably got the axe. Too bad -- you could have started your own distillery.


4 Orange Premium Vodka is the first vodka made from four different Florida orange varieties. According to its press agent, "this revolutionary orange-based vodka embodies the essence of Florida. One bottle contains twenty Florida oranges, taking you on a trip to Florida's grove stands."

Hey, we'll drink to that. This sounds like it could easily be included as part of a healthy, robust breakfast.

4 Orange is 80-proof and gluten-free. Obtain your bottle ($25) at Total Wine & Spirits and ABC Liquors.

After the jump, it's a tangy cocktail! Starring the aforementioned spirit.
