For an equally delicious alcohol-free version, replace the vodka and orange liquor with 1 cup sparkling water and ¼ cup fresh orange juice. Then, pour all ingredients into a pitcher filled with ice, rather than a cocktail shaker, to combine before serving.

1 oz. orange liquor, such as Cointreau or triple sec

- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add all other ingredients. Cover and shake vigorously to blend.
Remove lid and strain into martini glasses. Garnish with slices of lime and serve immediately. Enjoy!
