Summer Cocktail Series: Spiked Lemonade

Spiked Lemondae for Summer Cocktail Series 2015


Here in Buffalo, it’s been blistering for the last couple of weeks. So for this week’s Summer Cocktail Series, we wanted to make something that would cool us down on the outside, and warm us up on the inside.  We went with a simple Spiked Lemonade recipe. You don’t need much to make it, but trust me when I say that it’s crisp, refreshing, and downright delicious. Check out everything you need to make it below, and let us know what you think of it!

    These sound great. We’ll have to try them this weekend.

    These’ll be interesting in a variety of vodkas, looking forward to try the SPUD
