When should I muddle softly vs hard ?

That will depend on the ingredients that you are looking to muddle.

If it’s any sort of green leaves such as Mint & Basil or others, you will always want to gently/barely muddle at all because you only want to squeeze out their essence/oil which is very easy to extract out of green leaves.
If you muddle them too long they will release their bitterness and ruin your drink.

However in this case, since the ingredients are lemon & orange slices, you will want to muddle them very hard and extra long because it is much harder to extract their juice/oils then it is with leaves. Plus there’s less risk of ruining your drink with bitterness.
