Lemon Candy Cocktail

Pucker up and get ready.  This drink is gonna cause at least one of you to go down.

Lemon Candy Cocktail

Isn’t it so dainty looking in the cute little container?  NOT.  This ain’t ya’ Grandma’s lemonade.  Trust me on this one.  I need to be completely blunt, upfront & honest.  You cannot taste one smidgen of alcohol in this cocktail.  Please exercise caution & drink responsibly.

Now that we have the warning out of the way, I’m gonna tell you what’s in this deceitful little drink.  One can of thawed lemonade concentrate, one bottle of Leinenkugel Summer Shandy Beer, one can of club soda and one can of Pinnacle Cotton Candy Vodka.  Use the lemonade concentrate can to measure the club soda and vodka.

Stir it all up and serve over ice.

A lot of people have been telling me that they’ve served my beer cocktails at {college} graduation parties, weddings and all kinds of events (I’m so honored!).  I wanted to do another easy, “throw it together in a pitcher” kind of cocktail for you all.  Just remember, if it’s your party, ya’ don’t wanna go down.  Bottoms up, friends!  (But not too much!).  Cheers!  :-)

      Thank you so much Amy–you made my day! I am planning on doing more doggy treat recipes soon…I also have an awesome doggy treat cookbook I’m going to be doing a giveaway on soon, too! :-)

  2. Mmm! Looks delicious :) what is Summer Shady Beer? Would any pale/white/wheat beer do?

    • The Blond Cook says:

      Thank you so much Ashley! Summer Shady beer is a “lemonade beer”…I would think that any pale/white/wheat beer would be really good, but I must say it was “spectacular” with the Leinenkugel brand Summer Shady. If you can find a lemonade/lemon flavored beer I would use that! :-)

  3. I will most definitely be sharing this at my annual bacon n beer party this summer! Can’t wait <3

  4. I love your blog and your recipes! I am definitely making one of your drinks this weekend! I’ve pinned them to my drinks board on pinterest! Take a look- you might get some more ideas :-)

    • The Blond Cook says:

      Thank you so much Jaime! I can’t wait wait to check out your board full of awesome drinks! :-)

    I saw this recipe earlier in the week and I just knew I had to make it this weekend. Sipping on some now and I must say it is delish. I should have made a double batch but I only had exactly 12oz of my cotton candy Pinnacle left. Finally another recipe for the flavored vodkas!! Great idea!

    • The Blond Cook says:

      Thank you January! I’m glad you liked it. I want to try ALL of the flavored vodkas, trying to decide on which one to get next! :-)

  6. Great recipe. It is yummy.
