Mary’s spiked lemonade for Labor Day!

August 22nd, 2013 No Comments




In my circles of friends, I’m famous for my little vodka infusions and killer cocktails.  This one came together on a whim and we were all pleased with how it turned out.  In making the mix, I threw everything in so I have no idea how much of what I put in.  So, I’m guessing it doesn’t really matter.  What does, is the time you allow it to marinate in the fridge.  You should have the blend mixed and chilling for at least 12 hours.

In a pitcher combine:

  • Good vodka (at least Tito’s) – about 1/2 of a 750ml bottle
  • Water – about a cup
  • Three big lemons squeezed in and a couple of the actual lemons
  • LOTS of mint

Makes 12 small cocktails.

Serve over a lot of ice (NO MIXER) with finely sliced cucumber and a mint sprig.  It’s refreshing on a hot day and absolutely delicious!



Before you start taking these bad boys down, might I suggest this trick to prevent your hangover.
