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)
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!
