Talking Welcome Summer!

So here in Minnesota, we do not get a lot of "summertime."

Today we had the kind of muggy, hot weather that makes a person only hungry for salad and something cold to drink. So I went shopping with "summer" in mind.

I know enough to know that what I created today has probably been created before. In fact, no one will hurt my feelings in the slightest if you know of a way to improve upon this drink recipe.

I just had to share because it was so good and so perfect after a hot day outside. Totally doable without alcohol as well, actually probably a healthier "pop" for kids.

Anywho, here it is:

Vodka (lemon flavored)
Lemon Sour
Club Soda
Frozen Fruit
Fresh Mint leaves

I used the frozen fruit as the ice, so that went in the glass first. (I used mangos and raspberries) After that I started with just a couple mint leaves. Then I added the vodka, the lemon sour and then the club soda.

I ended up adding more mint for a fresher finish. I also tasted and liked more lemon sour. I love club soda but other sparkling waters would work as well.

Happy Summer everyone!

People will forget what you said, they will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.
