Ingredients

 

100 ML Wild-Arbor

Zest of one Orange

One and a half cups full of ice

240 ML of Oatly Oat Drink Whole (the original recipe uses whole milk, but oat milk seems to work better)

500 ML of freshly squeezed orange juice

2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract

Glass

Collins/Highball

 

Garnish

Orange Wedge, fresh mint sprigs


 

Instructions (Makes two)

 

  1. Freeze the orange juice, this is best done as cubes or in a flat tray as you will be blending it with the ice cubes later
     

  2. Pour the milk and vanilla in a blender and pulse until combined
     

  3. Add the cubes or pieces of frozen orange juice and half the zest. Blend until fully combined with the milk
     

  4. Add the Wild-Arbor and ice cubes and blend until cubes are crushed and mixture has thickened. If it starts to look too thick add a little water, and pulse once or twice again.

 

Presentation

This is a drink born to be enjoyed simply, but sometimes you might want to give it a little bit of that old Hollywood glamour. In that case, freeze your glasses; when ready, paint the rims with a little Wild-Arbor and dip in a mixture of sugar and the orange zest

 

Then fill the glasses and decorate with the orange wedge and mint sprigs

 

Note

Do not be tempted to use the orange juice unfrozen or chilled. Without the iciness, the texture and character of the drink will change dramatically. Adding extra ice to compensate after the event will also be doomed to failure. Be warned!
