With from-scratch strawberry sauce, homemade lemonade, and the liquor of your choice, Spiked Strawberry Lemonade is the perfect drink to cool down with this summer.
I don’t drink much alcohol. As I often tell people, I’ve spent much of my nine legal drinking years pregnant, broke, or both. Neither condition is conducive to cocktails, so I haven’t done the recipe experimentation a lot of my foodie friends have.
I got to dabble in cocktail creation during our recent trip to Oregon. I still had some ideas floating around when we returned home, but instead of my mom’s stocked liquor cabinet, I had one lonely half-bottle of below average vodka in the freezer from that one time I made homemade vanilla extract. There was also a carton of gorgeous strawberries in the refrigerator, so this Spiked Strawberry Lemonade was born.
