lemony minty cocktail for a summer night

When life hands you limonata, add vodka {and a pink straw, of course}. This is a simple summer cocktail that goes down {just a little} too easy. It’s a slightly fizzy, totally minty, refreshing as heck lemonade for grown-ups.

AND the bottle is so flipping cute, serving it in an actual glass is just a no-no (plus no glassware dishes at the end of the night, yay!). I’m telling you, if you are having loved ones over for a bbq on the back patio on a warm summers night – this is a must. If there are kids around, just minus the vodka and there ya go. Everyone is happy.
