How to Make It

I couldn't find lemon flavored vodka, so did 1/4 cup Limoncello and 1/4 regular Vodka; added a nice sweetness. If you are making this for a party make extra! It will be gone before you can blink. My go to recipe for summer BBQ's.
This recipe is a very refreshing cocktail for a warm day. I served this beverage at a deck party with grilled foods and the lemony zip contrasted with the smoky flavors of the meat very nicely. I used lime flavored Perrier and Grand Marnier for first rate flavor and was not disappointed. I will definitely make this spiked lemonade again.
