Vodka lemonade is a great, easy, beverage for your next backyard barbecue! It’s simple to make and super refreshing!

Summertime and lemonade. Hand in hand, right?

And how about a splash of vodka in that lemonade? Still with me? Long day playing with the kids at the beach/park/zoo/etc.? Put them to bed, wait for that sweet, sweet, sweet silence and pour yourself a little cocktail and bring out the cards to play some euchre with friends and family.

Are you liking the picture I’m painting? I sure am.

I often make watermelon mint lemonade and if I’m in the mood, I add a splash of vodka. Another favorite is sparkling pink lemonade with homemade berry syrup. And a cherry martini with elderflower and lime or an orange mojito is always a winner in my book. And if I’m in the mood for something creamy, a mojito milkshake really hits the spot.

But you can’t beat the pure simplicity of a drink made with lemonade and vodka. With pre-made lemonade, it’s even easier. And I like easy, don’t you?

I was thrilled when Stoli invited me* to come try their Stoli-ade – a refreshing cocktail made with lemonade and Stolichnaya® Vodka, I gladly accepted the invite.

The fun part about this is that we’re in Northern Michigan visiting my in-laws and the event is just a bit further north in super fun Traverse City. And it just so happens to be Cherry Festival this week so it will be extra lively in Traverse City while Stoli is swinging through town in their lemonade trucks (aka “limo-nades”).

I’m curious — would you make yours a classic vodka lemonade or would you use one of the Stoli flavors? If so – which one?

Here are some photos from my visit with my mother-in-law to sample #StoliLemonade and see the Limo-nade! We had so much fun.
