Lord. Have. Mercy.
I swear I told myself I wouldn’t drink Thirsty Thursday drinks right before posting the recipe.
I’ve actually thought a time or two that I should have named my blog “The Blond Lush” because it seems like I’ve only posted drinks for a while now. Truth is, I made an awesome homemade German Chocolate Cake here recently that I’m going to share with you soon. Until then, you’ll have to deal with this cocktail.
That’s not so bad, is it?
I recently was assigned an article for SheKnows.com the other day about different types of lemonade recipes. One of the lemonade recipes I made was Strawberry Lemonade.
Well, you know me. If it can be spiked, I’m on it.
And I was on it.
I made this awesome Strawberry Lemonade… then spiked it with Pinnacle’s Strawberry Shortcake Vodka. Thanks, Pinnacle. You freakin’ rock.
This recipe is a little more complicated more than my other cocktail recipes. That’s okay, because you can use lemonade concentrate if you don’t feel like squeezing the crap out of lemons to make lemonade. I know we’re all short on time… especially when it’s time to get our drink on.
So, I’m gonna cut to the chase and tell you how I made this awesome cocktail. Do yourself a favor and pick up a bottle of Pinnacle Strawberry Shortcake… that stuff rules!
