Happy Saturday ladies! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend and doing just what they want to be doing! For me, that will be beaching it. Yep, I will be headed to the beach in January! Right now, it's fair to say we are deep into winter and, I don't know about you, but I certainly can tell. The winter blues are seeping in and I am in some desperate need of sunshine. So, to make due, I created sunshine in a glass with this winter blues cocktail.
Made with UV blue raspberry vodka for that gorgeous blue color and a sweet (but not too sweet) twist on a vodka lemonade, this winter blues cocktail will have you smiling in no time. The lemonade is scratch made with meyer lemons, filtered water, and a tiny bit of raw cane sugar. The meyer lemons have their own sweetness so I just balanced out the tartness with a tad bit of sugar. Just sit back, steal your kids sound machine (put it on beach waves), sip, and enjoy! We will fool ourselves out of this winter funk!
What's great about this cocktail, is like the spiked hot chocolate, there is a part that the kiddos can enjoy. My son LOVES lemonade so he was thrilled to enjoy a glass. If your family loves lemonade like mine does feel free to double (or triple) the lemonade recipe for a tasty treat the whole family can enjoy!
To make this tasty winter blues cocktail you need to first make the lemonade.
2 meyer lemons, juiced
