Homemade lemonade with fresh strawberries is a perfect spring or summer-time beverage. Throw in some vodka and you’ll be ready for a Sunday Funday!
If you are hosting brunch for Mother’s Day, hand the mother(s) in your life a tall glass of homemade strawberry lemonade to enjoy while you’re busy cooking. And if she’s the boozing type throw in a shot of vodka! I personally came to appreciate vodka lemonade after trying it out at The Slider Inn while living in Memphis. This concept may not be novel to some people but I was extra excited when I realized all the fun flavor combinations that could be created with their well stocked supply of flavored vodkas (they even had one called loopy which tasted like fruit loops). I took it one step further by adding both real strawberries and vodka to homemade lemonade, resulting in one deliciously dangerous cocktail. Happy Mother’s Day!
