Things I Love Thursday-Strawberry Lemonade

August 12, 2010 at 7:04 am 1 comment

It wouldn’t be a TILT post if it didn’t involve alcohol, so here we go.

We had a big party here a couple weeks ago for my Father-in-law who just turned 70. In addition to the typical beer and wine, I wanted a fun drink. I came up with this Strawberry Lemonade.

Big jug of rock gut vodka
Small container of strawberries
2 bottles of Simply Lemonade
Cucumber (yes, I said cucumber)

1. Take the jug of vodka remove the plastic pour spout and pour some out (of course don’t throw it away)
2. Remove hulls from the strawberries, cut in half and put into vodka
3. Let sit overnight. Its kind of amazing what happens, initially the strawberries sink, as they lose their color they float!
4. Rinse cucumber and slice into thin slices.
5. In a large container, preferably one with a spigot, mix strained vodka, both lemonades, and cucumbers.
6. Stir and serve over ice.

I love the earthiness the cucumbers add to counteract the sweetness of the lemonade. Its a great drink to serve on these insanely hot days.

Here’s a little hint: Save the lemonade bottles, so you can conveniently save the unused lemonade in the fridge.
