Lucky Lemon Seven
Happy Thursday Slow Roasters! Welcome to Ladies Night here at The Slow Roasted Italian!!!
At our fabulous New Year eve celebration this year, our dear friends shared a drink with us again that Chad has fallen in love with. It is simple, smooth and delicious. 7 Up with vodka and lemon. Chad really wanted to pump this one up. So, after a few days of testing in the mixology lab, he came up with this fabulous amped up twist!
It might sound mild, but this ain't your Grandma's lemonade! This one packs a punch. I love it!!! It's like having a lemonade with 7 Up, the vodka is barely noticeable. I hope you enjoy it too! It is certainly for the lemon lover.
Lucky Lemon Seven serves 2
5 small lemons, sliced thin (divided)
6 ounces Grey Goose vodka
8-16 ounces 7-Up (to taste)
8 ice cubes
Fill a large glass (approximately 20 ounces) with the slices from 4 lemons. Add vodka, allow to set for 15 minutes and then using a muddler or similar instrument, muddle thoroughly. Your lemons should be shredded when done.
In two fresh large glasses with 4 ice cubes in each and 1/2 of the remaining lemon slices in each, pour 1/2 of the lemon vodka mixture through a strainer and into each glass. Add 4-8 ounces of 7-Up to each glass and serve.
