Know what the perfect pairing is to a hot, humid summer day? Lemonade. Even better? Vodka Lemonade. I’ve got the best, super easy vodka lemonade recipe for you to sip on your front porch!
Does vodka and lemonade taste good?
Yes. If you think about it many classic vodka cocktails have a citrus flavor to them – the lime wedge in a vodka tonic or the lemon in a vodka Collins.
What kind of lemonade do I use for a vodka lemonade?
You can use store-bought lemonade or you can make your own using any number of recipes that you find out there. You could even use a concentrate if you’re short on time or if you’re going to make a large batch. Generally speaking, the ratio of lemonade to vodka, can be as little as 2 to 1 or as high as 4 to 1. Kind of play around with it and see what suits you.
My favorite way to make lemonade is to make it myself. I fill a glass full of water and then add lemon juice to the water. Then I take two packets of stevia, add them to the lemon water, taste it and see if I like it. Then I add either more lemon juice or stevia depending on the taste. It’s really easy to make and you are able to control the sugar because you’re using stevia, a natural zero calorie sweetener.
