Behind the Bar: Frank Vairo's Estate House Orange Julius
Frank Vairo's take on the grown-up-style Orange Julius has quickly become a house favorite. With Upstairs at Estate House's patio, there's no doubt the drink will maintain its high ranking in the sweltering summer months soon approaching.
The drink has a refreshing combination of orange and vanilla, and just enough sweetness to reminisce about orange slushy summer days gone by.
The vanilla flavored Licor 43 in the drink is made with 43 herbs and spices, and nicely complements the orange in the Hanger One Mandarin Blossom vodka.
