The other day Shan posted lemon bars, really really good lemon bars. You know what else is good? Vodka. Especially lemons and vodka. Better yet, lemons and vodka with strawberry and basil. Something sweet, tart and fresh – can’t think of a more appropriate cocktail to welcome in the much anticipated glorious weather days.
While Shan and I were expecting our girls we were obsessed with the strawberry lemonade from Chili’s. Not being one to typically order soda or other sugary drinks I had totally forgotten how amazing that lemonade was – until now. In order to make this cocktail you will need to make a batch of good ol’ homemade strawberry lemonade. Beauty of this is you can serve it to your nonalcoholic crowd who will delight in the deliciousness. There is some work that goes into squeezing all the lemons so make sure you keep enough to yourself for cocktails – if you did the squeezing you certainly deserve the reward.

You should be hearing the sound of lawnmowers, sizzling grills and kids splashing away in the lawn pool by now. Make a batch of this the next time supervision is required for all those activities – it’s an exhausting job after all. Cheers!
