Is there a better way to enjoy spring than on your patio with a tall cold glass of spiked lemonade? I love this recipe via Spicy Ice Cream. Be sure to peruse her blog, so many amazing looking cocktail ideas!

Thirsty Thursday: Melting Like a Toasted Cheeser

Filed under: Thirsty Thursday — Tags: , , , , , , , — ex-boyfriend @ 4:24 pm

I apologize for the lack of a WTF post yesterday; I was playing hooky and losing my body weight in sweat at the ballpark watching the Orioles lose to the Red Sox.

It was hot. Like, unnaturally hot. When I left the house last night at 11pm to pick up our pizza for dinner, it was 90°. Right now it’s 102°. Tomorrow’s projected high? 106°. DO. NOT. WANT.

Anyway…what better way to stay cool than a refreshing libation? This tasty treat is courtesy of Carrie Vibert at Poet In The Pantry. Looks and sounds delicious, but we need a snappier name for…

Blueberry Lemonade for Mamas and Papas

Ingredients:

  • ice cubes (Carrie suggests freezing blueberries in the cubes for presentation)
  • 2 oz blueberry vodka (I recommend Stolichnaya’s)
  • 3 oz lemonade (Store-bought is OK, I guess, but seriously: make your own. Juice of 1 lemon, 1/2-1 Tbsp. of preferred sweetener, and a pint of club soda should do it. Experiment with those ratios until you hit on something you like.)
  • slice of lemon

Drop some ice cubes into your glass. Pour the blueberry vodka and lemonade over them. Stir. Garnish with a slice of lemon. Get crunk!
