Happy Happy Cocktail Thursday everybody!!! It has basically been a week of non stop celebration for my birthday, so I figure, why stop now? I promise you, any celebration you might be having will continue with this cocktail.
The summer heat is finally starting to stick around here, which honestly, as someone who is a member of the ‘forever cold club’ I can’t say I’m too upset by this. I know I’m definitely not in the majority in that regard, but even with my preference for the heat, I start craving all things citrus and fruity this time of year, so I’m always looking for new stuff to switch it up.
This particular libation was a very happy accident due to the whole, let’s look and see what I have in my fridge and pantry, it’s a fun game if you haven’t played it before just FYI. Anyways, I literally just started pulling out stuff I liked and thought might taste good together (and also might give it that kick, knowhatimsayin?) and voila! you have the Lemonade Punch.
Just so y’all know, I’m calling it a punch not because it is a punch in the normal way, like the kind you serve at baby showers, I’m saying it will punch you in the face if you let it haha. Y’all, this cocktail has vodka and Limoncello (say hello to the punch), lemonade (which I bought), ginger ale and lemon zest (hello again to the punch). This is a delightful cocktail y’all, I recommend you making it soon and as always you can add more ginger ale to tone down the tart, or add more alcohol for a bigger punch, totally up to you. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic rest of your week.
