Hawksworth's Gold Crusher

[Photograph: Melody Fury]

Using tangelo's peel (infused into vodka) and its juice, this sunny cocktail is loaded with citrus flavor. Brad Stanton of Hawksworth in Vancouver chose this hybrid between tangerine and pomelo for its robust citrus oils. He tops the cocktail with a splash of ginger beer for fizz and spice.

If you can't find tangelo, try substituting it with a combination of tangerine and grapefruit.

The sparkling orange color explains the "Gold" part of this drink's name. And "Crusher"? Stanton explained that this drink goes down so easily that it can be consumed as quickly as some guys chug beer (and crush the can on their foreheads).
