Homemade Strawberry (Vodka) Lemonade

by Erin

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!

Homemade Strawberry Vodka Lemonade

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. And while this recipe only serves 1, you can easily make a bigger batch.

While you’re at it, save the peels from those lemons to make homemade limoncello – it’s a two for one!

That color is fantastic. It is finally in the high 70s this weekend. Sipping one these babies in the back yard would be ideal.
