How has your week been? Did you try the Caramel Rye Pie from last week’s post? We finally got some relief from the heat with a few rain showers and temps in the high 80’s. Alleluia! This is going to be a quick post this week, because we are moving Blind Piglet #1 back to college this weekend for her senior year. Blind Piglets #2 and #3 return to school next week. We can’t believe that summer is almost over.
Although summer is winding down, you still have a few weekends left to enjoy the fun and the sun. This week we share a quick and easy drink recipe with you: Grown Up Berry Lemonade.
To make Grown Up Berry Lemonade you need a 52 ounce bottle of Minute Maid Lemonade. We always use the low calorie Minute Maid Lite to save on calories. Pour the lemonade into a large pitcher or drink dispenser. Next add two cups of Seagram’s Berry Vodka. Add 1/2 cup of frozen mixed berries. The frozen berries add to the flavor and help to give the lemonade a berry pink color. Garnish the lemonade in the pitcher or dispenser with slices of fresh lemon, fresh mint sprigs, and sliced strawberries. Let the mixture sit for about an hour to allow time for the flavors to infuse. Add ice to the pitcher or dispenser before serving. Garnish individual servings with a berry and a mint sprig.
