Happy Labor Day Weekend! We know we are posting a little late. We have been soaking up the last rays of summer and enjoying some free time. We’ve been a little lax on our posting recently. We know. Hopefully we will do much better in September than we did in August?
This week we wanted to share with you a great large batch recipe for weekends like this. We did not create this recipe. It was one that we ripped from the pages of a magazine years ago and unfortunately we are not sure which one. We liked the recipe for Spiked Summer Lemonade because most of the ingredients are probably in your kitchen or refrigerator right now. It is easy, tasty and fresh, and allows you time to concentrate on entertaining guests on your dock or patio instead of behind the bar serving everyone.
We made this recipe for a large gathering we had at our house a couple of weeks ago. The guests were arriving early so Rhonda was able to only get a few quick photos before she had to go into full hostess mode. The Spiked Lemonade was a hit, and many guests were surprised to find out that beer was one of the main ingredients.
Spiked Summer Lemonade is made from frozen berries, chilled light beer, lemonade concentrate, vodka and lemon and lime slices for garnish. First stir together the lemonade concentrate and vodka and chill for a day. The following day stir in fresh berries and beer. Then you are ready to serve! Yep, it’s that easy!
This is a great beverage for sipping on the dock or next to the pool with friends. Tryout it out the next time you need a quick large batch recipe. We know you will be pleased.
