Sampling seven orange crushes around town

mango strawberry crush at FiVeBaltimore Sun contributor Lisa Wiseman recently set out to sample seven (7) orange crushes from various Baltimore bars.

It was an ambitious, acidic task, and I hope she brought a roll of Tums with her. Here's a link to the roundup.

The orange crush pictured here is actually a delicious-sounding mango strawberry crush, which can be found at FiVe Martini Bar.

Lisa describes it as such:

Naturally, this cocktail will remind some of a strawberry daiquiri, except that this one is made with vodka, not rum, and is not frozen.

While its bright red color is a little alarming, this drink is a nice alternative to other fruity, girly drinks like the aforementioned daiquiri or a strawberry margarita. Plus, it comes in a manly pint glass, so dudes can order without fear of having their man cards revoked.

Manly, eh? I just might have to try one myself.

OMG I love orange crushes! I've seen that Ryleigh's has them too early in the night... too bad I always show up after then! It was great to meet you last night Sam!

Lisa skipped over Riptide by the Bay in Fells Point, which makes the sauciest OCs in town.

Power Plant Live! is featuring fresh squeezed crushes for $5 tomorrow night (friday) during the Mr Greengenes concert for Rocktoberfest. starts at 8pm. it'll be in Luckies Tavern if the weather is bad. Our reciped is based off of Harborside in Ocean City where the crush originated.

Another great place for happy hour drinks.

Drag. I thought this was about the soda Orange Crush.

I love Crush.

I've got my megaphone, I've got my Orange Crush
