Punch Up Your Spring Party with this Pink Lemonade Cocktail Tutorial

by Jackie FogartieApril 25, 2014

Pink Lemonade was one of my favorite drinks as a little girl – the sweetness, the blushing pink color, what’s not to love, am I right? Now that I’m all grown up, I still love my pink lemonade, but in cocktail form, of course!
By combining pink lemonade with liquor, such as vodka, you can serve your guests a refreshing drink that’s perfect for the warmer months and fabulous outdoor living. Style your cocktail with fancy striped straws and mint leaves for an added ‘wow’ factor. Recipe and directions are below:

Pink Lemonade Cocktail Recipe:

  • 32 oz. pink lemonade
  • 8 oz. vodka
  • 4 sprigs of mint leaves

Makes 4 cocktails
This is a super simple recipe with only a few ingredients. Start by putting mint leaves at the bottom of your chic glass and top with 2 oz. of vodka, followed by a fourth of the lemonade. Drop in some ice, swirl around with a straw and voila – you have a cocktail worthy of any soiree that’s minty fresh to boot. Serve with a colorful striped straw for a stylish presentation. You can even serve it up sans alcohol for those kiddos (like me) who love their pink lemonade! Cheers!
