Drink of the Week: Grapefruit & Orange Crushes


Summer in Cape May County is in full swing! Once you leave the beach for the day, head to Wildwood for a summertime classic and our drinks of the week, Grapefruit & Orange Crushes from Ship n’ Shore.

Crushes are a fan-favorite drink, but at Ship n’ Shore, they have multiple takes on the classic summertime cocktail. Bartender Christine made two options to choose from: an orange crush and a grapefruit crush. For the orange crush, Christine combined fresh “crushed” orange juice, blood orange vodka, triple sec, and club soda in a cup over ice. For the grapefruit crush, she swapped out the OJ for fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and added grapefruit vodka in place of orange vodka. She garnished each cup with an orange and a grapefruit, respectively, and they were ready to be served!

Crushes are best enjoyed outdoors, so Ship n’ Shore’s outdoor seating is the perfect place to relax and enjoy these refreshing drinks! Travel by boat or by car for a drink outside and a delicious meal, including homemade burgers, hot and cold sandwiches, salads, pizzas, and more. If you prefer to eat at home, they are also open for takeout – just call 609-522-0377 to place your order. They even offer weekend entertainment, so head to Ship n’ Shore to try these spectacular crushes for yourself!
