" Red Hill Groves was established in 1962. Our packinghouse is in the beautiful Conway area of Orlando. Rich in citrus history, many of central Florida's citrus pioneers planted their first groves here. Known for its good soil, beautiful sand bottom lakes and clean healthy air, it's the perfect place for us to showcase our delicious citrus fruit.

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed pink grapefruit juice (1 grapefruit)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (2 limes)
1 cup good vodka (recommended: Grey Goose or Finlandia), optional
Extra lemon juice
Granulated sugar
Fresh mint sprigs

Combine the orange juice, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, lime juice, and vodka, if using, in a pitcher. Dip the rim of 6 martini glasses first in a dish with lemon juice and then a dish with sugar. Set aside to dry.

When ready to serve, place ice cubes in a cocktail shaker, add the cocktail mixture to fill the shaker 3/4 full, and shake for about 30 seconds. It's important to shake for a full 30 seconds to get the drink very cold and dilute it slightly with the ice. Pour into the sugared martini glasses and garnish with a sprig of mint. Continue filling the shaker with ice and cocktail mixture until all the drinks are poured. Serve ice cold.
