As I mentioned in my last post, Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Muffins, I spent last week relaxing with my family at the beach house we rent every year in Aptos, California where we ate and drank more than usual. At least I did and that’s because my cousin made the most delicious strawberry drink I have ever had (and one that I’m calling The Beach House because I really have no idea if it has a name and this just seemed fitting!) I’m being serious, it was DELICIOUS!
I’m not a huge drinker and usually I am content just sipping a beer. I pretty much sip every drink- it takes me forever to finish any sort of beverage unless it’s a milkshake. That I can finish in minutes! This drink, however, I feel like I could drink buckets full. The best part is that it is so simple to make and you can make it with or without alcohol and it’s just as good! Well, for some, maybe not just as good 😉
The two most important keys to this drink is that you need really good lemonade (Simply Lemonade is my favorite!) and fresh strawberries. Frozen strawberries will work just as well but in the summer, it’s all about fresh strawberries! There are also no measurements with this drink. If you want more lemonade flavor, add more lemonade. Need more strawberry, crush a few more! Go make this now, I promise you won’t regret it!
- Club Soda
- Crushed Strawberries
- Vodka (optional)
- Crush strawberries in the bottom of glass.
- Fill half the glass with lemonade, a quarter with club soda and about a shot of Vodka.
- Stir and pour over glass filled with ice. Enjoy!
*This recipe does not have measurements because it easily adapted to taste preference. Play around with ratios a bit and you’ll find a combination you love!
