It’s pretty well known, that I love delicious cocktails. Really adult drinks of any kind: wine, beer, spirits, mixes–you name it, I like to indulge appropriately and responsibly. While the winter is perfect for stout or porter beers and heavier drinks, the warm, summer sun screams ice-cold, frozen, fresh concoctions. Lately I have been a huge fan of Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka. (No this isn’t a sponsored post, I just really like the stuff.)
Its flavor is true lemon, not a phony lemon-Pledge like taste you find in others, and it goes great with everything. Pour it over ice alone, mix it with your favorite cola, add it to your sweet tea and even use it as a mixer. Other than maybe sweet tea, what thirst-quenching drink goes down perfectly on a hot summer day? Pink Lemonade! What frosty adult beverage is perfect for any occasion, especially scorching-hot summer evenings, weekends and backyard bbqs? Margaritas, of course! And ta-da!–my version of the Pink Lemonade Margarita was born!
Now, I used to measure everything out in ounces, but found that those trying to make the recipe at home often times only had a shot glass as a measuring unit, so that’s how I measured this one out. You’ll need the above pictured ingredients: Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, tequila, sweet-and-sour and grenadine or maraschino cherry juice. You can make it frozen or over ice, whichever you prefer.
1 full shot of Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka
1/2 – 1 shot of Tequila (For frozen ones I like to use the full shot, for on-the-rocks I like only 1/2)
2 full shots of Sweet-and-Sour
a splash of grenadine or cherry juice for color
If frozen is your preference, add ingredients to the blender with 7-10 ice cubes and blend. For an on-the-rocks margarita shake ingredients and pour over ice. I used yellow sugar-crystals for the rim, although salt would work, too. I hope you enjoy the Pink Lemonade Margarita as much as I have. It’s a perfect balance of sweet and sour and super refreshing!
