Prep: 5 Minutes


2 to 3 cups vodka
3 cups orange juice
2 (12-ounce) cans lemon-lime soft drink
Ice cubes
1/3 cup maraschino cherry juice
Garnishes: lime slices, maraschino cherries


Stir together first 3 ingredients in a pitcher. Fill 8 glasses with ice cubes, filling three-quarters full. Pour vodka mixture evenly over ice. Spoon 2 teaspoons cherry juice into each glass (do not stir). Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.

Tip: Buy a carton or bottle of orange juice labeled "not from concentrate" for the best flavor. Serve bottled water and iced tea as nonalcoholic options.
