Since Memorial Day weekend is basically the unofficial start of the summer season, we’re sure you’ve got plenty to toast to this weekend. Warm weather, a three-day weekend, or having family by for a barbecue—no matter the occasion, if you’re searching for a drink to fill our gorgeous Blooming Wine Glasses, here’s an idea. Try our strawberry lemonade cocktail or make it a mocktail instead. The perfect drink for summer, it’s refreshing and not too sweet. Here’s how to make it yourself:
1 container of fresh strawberries
1/2 gallon of fresh lemonade
2 cups of ice
3 oz. of vodka (completely optional)
1. Start with a base of fresh lemonade. So make your grandma’s recipe or buy your favorite brand. The higher quality the lemonade, the tastier the final product. Same with the strawberries. The riper, the better!
2. Fill a blender halfway with fresh strawberries. Add in two cups of ice and the vodka. Fill the blender with lemonade so that these ingredients are completely covered.
3. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
4. Pour generous servings into the wine glasses, and garnish with a slice of lemon and a slice of strawberry.
Cheers to the summer season! If you need us, we’ll be lounging dockside all weekend long and enjoying a nice little respite from work.
