Summertime, the livin’ is easy…especially when you have this fresh summer cocktail in hand! Last summer we had a value pack of strawberries in the fridge on a friday night and I decided to experiment to make myself a delicious summer drink. Lo and behold I no idea it would become my favorite summer sipper, the strawberry lime lemonade cocktail.
Summer Strawberry Lime Vodka Lemonade Cocktail Recipe
2 ounces vodka
1 sugar cube
1/2 lime, juiced
4 ounces lemonade
Splash of ginger ale
Step 1: Wash and slice 2-3 fresh strawberries.
Step 2: Muddle your strawberries in a tall glass along with 1-2 shots of vodka (depending in your preference of strength), and 1 sugar cube (optional). Don’t have a muddler? I recommend getting a nice stainless steel option, like this Cocktail Muddler & Mixing Spoon for under $10 on Amazon.
Step 3: Juice 1/2 lime into the cocktail. Add lemonade and a splash of ginger ale for a sparkle. Sip and enjoy!
Now grab your drink and get outdoors! For Alex’s birthday last year I bought and painted a couple corn hole boards, so we get to enjoy a fresh cocktail in the backyard playing a quick game. I have been experimenting with using blueberries now too and find them to be a great addition to summer drinks. What fresh fruit cocktails have you enjoyed on these hot summer nights?
