It may sound a bit indulgent, but one of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to serve a signature drink at any get together my husband and I host at our home. We had a small gathering of friends over for a Memorial Day holiday BBQ today. And though the weather didn’t cooperate, I wanted to serve something fun and fruity to kick off the summer.
I recently changed jobs and a co-worker had given me a bottle of homemade limoncello as a parting gift (so thoughtful!) I thought that this would be the perfect time to break it out to try a new cocktail. Have you ever tried a Limoncello Blush? It is pleasantly sweet and has a pretty pink color. I wouldn’t be able to drink something this sugary all night but it was a great way to start the BBQ.
Here’s how what you need:
- 1 oz. limoncello
- 3 oz lemonade
- 1/2 oz cranberry juice
- 1/2 oz soda water (we didn’t have any on hand, so I substituted 7up)
- Garnish with a lemon wedge
Do you have a favorite summer cocktail?
