signature cocktail #tastetest
Whip up and sample a new seasonal craft cocktail with us each week with so you're super informed when choosing your signature drink. 'Cause someone's gotta do it.
Spiked Strawberry Lemonade
3 cups ripe strawberries
juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup vodka
3 cups sparkling water
Chop the strawberries into small pieces and blitz them in a blender until smooth and liquified. Pour through a sieve, pressing with a rubber spatula to help strain. Pour into a pitchen along with the lemon juice and vodka, then stir to combine. Slowly pour in the sparkling water and serve over ice. Makes 4-6 refreshing servings.
Our thoughts: Marcie served this one at her own summer wedding, and it was a great drink to greet guests with as they moved from the outdoor ceremony into cocktail hour. It's pretty, refreshing, and a lovely way to kick off a summer party 🍓🍋
