We are starting to get hints of Summer sunshine here in England, and it’s making me feel quite happy. I don’t drink much but a week or so ago I was craving a sweet summery cocktail, so I worked with what we had in the flat, and we sipped these on the balcony in the sunshine. And if I do say so myself, they were delicious.
I started off by rimming the glasses with sugar, purely for decorative purposes. I then put a handful of chopped strawberries in the bottom of each glass, along with a sprinkle of sugar, and smashed them up with a spoon. I squeezed a quarter of a lemon between the two glasses and added a lemon slice to each and a couple of whole strawberries too.
Then I added a single measure of Limoncello, and a splash of Vodka, the great thing about this drink is that you can add as little or as much alcohol as you like, and it doesn’t massively affect the taste of the drink! Then I simply topped it up with lemonade! You’ll want to give it all a good stir, so that the smushed strawberries are all mixed up! Alcoholic Strawberry Lemonade, Delicious!
