Today we are going to make one of my favorite drinks, Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail. This drink is the perfect mix of sweet and tangy and will immediately transport you to your happy place.
My favorite cocktails to serve when I’m hosting are the simplest to make, and that’s not by accident. When I’m playing bartender while friends are over, I don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen all night preparing drinks. I love fun summery beverages that don’t require a lot of prep but appear more impressive when served. It’s all about the presentation.
The secret to the quick beverage is having a good base to start with that you don’t have to make yourself. Evolution Fresh has some great juices that I use as the main ingredient in many of the cocktails that I make and I don’t feel bad about using them. These juices aren’t overly sweet and don’t have a lot of ick in them. The juice used in this Strawberry Lemonade Cocktail only has organic lemons, strawberries, and cane sugar! Simple.
All this cocktail needs is Organic Strawberry Lemonade by Evolution Fresh, your choice of vodka, lemons, strawberries, and mint. The measurements aren’t perfected to a science, so play with it and see what works best for you. I put in a splash or two of vodka, fill up the remaining cup about 3/4 of the way. After, I squeeze in a few lemons and garnish the glass with a strawberry and lemon. Last, I mix in a few mint leaves or leave a couple on top. Voila!
This delicious juice by Evolution Fresh comes in 11 oz, 15.2 oz, and 59 oz so use your judgment based on the size of your party, or how thirsty you are if it’s a party for one 😉
