The Oak Island Press

This refreshing citrus cocktail was created while we were on vacation with friends on Oak Island in Lake of the Woods. This remote island is accessed by boat from a small town in northern Minnesota. Before we crossed the lake to our friends’ cabin, we gathered supplies at the neighborhood grocery store, grabbing an assortment of citrus fruits to use with a small citrus juicer. We hoped we could make fresh juice to create fun cocktails to enjoy before dinner.

The end result was a big hit and we named it The Oak Island Press. It has since become a regular in my cocktail repertoire. In this recipe, I list specific amounts and types of citrus fruits to get you started, but feel free to use any varieties and amounts you wish. I have used pomelos, blood oranges, and clementines in the past. Get creative! This drink can also be served as a delicious mocktail without any spirits. Enjoy!
