It’s Thursday and spring, which means I’m already dreaming of spending my weekend outside. I get in the mood for lemonade as soon as the temperature is above 60 for more than about five minutes. On a weekday, lemonade alone is treat enough (thanks to the sugar), but after surviving the week, I like to boost the indulgence level a little with this quick and easy “adult” variation.
- 1oz Vodka (I prefer a Paleo-friendly variety, like Ciroc or Idol)
- 1/2oz Gran Marnier or Gran Gala
- Lemonade (freshly made if you’re ambitious, or your favorite store-bought variety if you’re falling over tired by the end of the week like yours truly – I like Simply Lemonade)
Place eight ice cubes in an Old Fashioned glass. Measure and add Vodka and Gran Marnier. Top with lemonade and stir. Cheers!
What’s your favorite weekend cocktail?
