The Pink Lemonade Kick

DSC_1986I love celebrating Christmas in South Africa. Our holidays are not traditional in the sense that we usually celebrate them on the beach or by a pool, so I thought something simple and refreshing is in order. I also wanted to find a drink that would taste equally good with and sans alcohol as we have very strict (and needed) laws regarding driving under the influence. A bonus is that it is really quick and easy to throw together!

DSC_1985All you need is:

  • 250 ml lemonade (not too fleshy)
  • 200 ml cranberry juice
  • 15 ml rose syrup
  • 20 ml vodka
  • mint
  • frozen raspberries
  • ice

Steps:

  1. Combine your lemonade, cranberry juice, rose syrup and voda. The syrup might need a stir to dissolve.
  2. Pour over ice into glasses for serving. Garnish with fresh mint and frozen raspberries. Grapes and other berries also work well.

Easy peasy, just the way I like it. You could replace the vodka and rose syrup with more cranberry juice if so desired, but they really elevate it.DSC_1990
