Start with lemon-flavored sparking water or club soda and add citrus-flavored vodka, lemon juice, sugar, and orange liqueur for an unforgettable spiked lemonade cocktail. Buy extra ingredients–this one is guaranteed to be a party-pleaser.
2 cups lemon-flavored sparkling water or club soda, chilled
1/2 cup citrus-flavored vodka, chilled
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange liqueur
Garnish: lemon slices
How to Make It
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large pitcher. Serve over crushed ice. Garnish each serving with a lemon slice, if desired.
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.

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.

Nice, light, and refreshing.

This is my new favorite drink. I used Skyy Citrus Vodka and Perrier Lemon. This is dangerous. You can't taste the vodka at all. It tastes like lemonade. Thankfully this recipe only makes 4 drinks. ;)

Made this for a party last night and it was a hit. Very refreshing, surprisingly not sweet. This will be the go-to drink for the summer.

Very refreshing but will be trying again with Voli Lemon Vodka to reduce calories. My new found obsession at only 53 cals per oz!
