  • 8" cocktail pick
  • bar spoon
  • highball glass
  • cocktail shaker
  • Hawthorne strainer
  • jigger


  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 5 oz Orange juice
  • 1 oz grenadine
  • 2 Maraschino cherries
  • 1 orange wedge


  • Stick a highball glass in the freezer to chill it and fill your cocktail shaker ¾ full with ice
  • Add in 2 oz Vodka
  • Add in 5 oz Orange juice
  • Put lid on shaker and shake for 10-15 seconds
  • Skewer a maraschino cherry, orange wedge, and a second maraschino cherry on an 8" cocktail pick and slide them to the top
  • Place garnish inside highball glass, and fill empty space with fresh ice (you may have to move the cocktail pick around some to get all the ice in)
  • Use a Hawthorne strainer to pour drink into glass over fresh ice (you can pour drink with ice from the shaker into the glass without straining)
  • Float 1 oz Grenadine on top by slowly pouring over the back of a bar spoon just over the surface of the drink (float means to add the ingredient on top without mixing it in)
  • Sit back and enjoy the view!
