We are now in full-on winter mode! Bring on the snow! While we fully support all the moms who are having a sober curious January, we also know many moms love a good cocktail, so we will keep them coming. To brighten up your winter weekend, try this winter blues cocktail. It's like some sunshine in a glass.

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!
