Lemonade Was A Popular Drink...

A favorite line of mine in a summertime song is from Gangstarr and Nice and Smooth DWYCK where they rap: "Lemonade is a popular drink...and it still is". There's not much that reminds me of summer than Lemonade. Add liquor to the lemonade, then we really set to have a good time this summer. So I decided to keep these drinks simple and easy by just using three ingredients each and both a regular light Lemonade and a light Pink Lemonade. Here are the recipes:

Vodka Sunrise
1oz Grey Goose Vodka
2oz Lemonade
Diet 7-Up to fill
Lemon Garnish

Build ingredients over ice and fill to top with Diet 7-Up


El Murcielago Rosado (The Pink Bat)
1oz Bacardi Rum
2oz Light Pink Lemonade
Diet 7-Up to Fill
Lime Garnish

Build ingredients over ice and fill to top with Diet 7-Up

Both drinks were very light. The kind of cocktails that would fit next to the pool or a tropical beach. Just don't drink them too fast. A few of these and you might be feeling some sunstroke and suburb when you fall asleep in the sun. So be responsible as you sip these and admire the skimpy bikinis and the tight abs while on the beach. ;)

Until Then Happy Drinking
