This weekend, we're madly scrambling to get our Lore hugged, kissed, packed and ready to return to Mexico. We're sad, certainly, but we're also excited for Lore to open a new chapter in her life. She knows that whatever her future holds, her American family will be watching with love, support and interest.
Me? I have a serious case of the weeps, so I decided to make a nice pitcher of Spiked Lemonade to get hubs and I through the weekend. It didn't cure the weeps, but it did dull the pain a little. Plus, it was delicious!
Spiked Lemonade (for when you have the weeps or just need a breather)
serves 8, or 2 sad-sack humans over a weekend
1 container (64 oz.) refrigerated prepared lemonade (I used Minute Maid Light)
1/2 cup Lemon Drop Martini Mix (liquor store has them--not the vodka enhanced version!)
1/2 cup Orange Flavored Vodka
1/2 cup Lemon Flavored Vodka
1 fresh lemon, sliced
Set aside 3/4 cup of the lemonade. Combine all other ingredients in a large pitcher. Stir. Chill at least 2 hours and serve over Lemonade Ice Cubes.
Lemonade Ice Cubes
Place a strawberry or raspberry in each square of an ice cube tray. Fill with left over 3/4 cup lemonade. Freeze until firm.
