Relax with an Electric Lemonade
Personally, I don’t think there’s anything as civilized as the practice of cocktails by the pool in the summer. Not that I have a pool but sometimes I’ll stick my feet in the old horse tank and pretend.
To me, a cocktail like this beautiful blue electric lemonade is a way force myself to take a break and allow myself to relax. It breaks the day up between work and not-work and kinda tastes like a vacation.
This is such an easy cocktail! I love it for summer entertaining because it’s pretty, it’s light, and it’s refreshing! Here are some variations and ideas.
- Change the number of servings to “8” to make a great pitcher drink. All of the ingredient measurements will increase. If you don’t know how to do this there are instructions on the Start Here page.
- Add some lemon wheels to the glass or pitcher for pretty presentation and extra flavor.
- I like to use this drink for 4th of July entertaining. Garnish with a cherry and a square of honeydew melon on a pick… or use a small star shaped cookie cutter to cut the honeydew into stars.
