Tart and bright, the citrusy flavour of lemons means summer has arrived. This zesty taste works wonderfully in cocktails that can be enjoyed out in the sun. We’ll explore different ways to enjoy vodka lemonades, from the classic cocktail to flavoured ones.
The classic Vodka Lemonade is a simple but delicious combination of, you guessed it, vodka and lemonade. Make sure to garnish with a lemon slice to elevate the serve. For an added twist, you could try swapping the original lemonade for pink lemonade, or even adding a splash of cranberry juice for a slightly different look and flavour. You could also try blending frozen lemonade with vodka.
The Berry Lemonade Jug combines the complementary flavours of lemon and raspberry in one large container. This recipe is perfect for when you get together with a large group of friends by the poolside or at the lake house. Just mix one up in advance and have several servings ready to go at once.
For a more herbaceous twist on the classic cocktail, try adding some thyme and lavender. The Thyme and Lavender Lemonade is a vodka lemonade cocktail with added depth and complexity, perfect for any summer picnic or party where you want to impress.
For those looking for a truly unique vodka lemonade, try making a Honey Deuce. This cocktail is the signature drink of the US Open Tennis Championships, and it’s as tasty as it is beautiful. It’s similar to a raspberry lemonade, along with a hint of honeydew melon flavour thanks to its charming garnish. Try making one or a jug for you and your friends.
Whether you're looking for a classic cocktail, a fruity twist or a unique creation like the Honey Deuce, there's a vodka lemonade recipe out there for everyone. And if you want to go outside the lemonade flavour profile, there are still plenty of other warm-weather recipes for you to enjoy. Find your favourite and get ready to enjoy a refreshing taste of summer.
