Strawberry Lime Summer Lemonade Cocktail

Posted on

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.

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?
