Lucky Lemon Seven the Best Lemonade Cocktail

http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2013/05/lucky-lemon-seven-best-lemonade-cocktail.html

Trust me this is not your Grandma's lemonade!  This lemonade cocktail is a combination of the juices of fresh muddled lemons, 7Up and premium vodka. It packs a fabulous flavor and it completely refreshing.  This is the perfect cocktail to add to any party!

The Lucky Lemon Seven cocktail recipe was created especially for me.  It probably comes as no surprise to hear me admit that I have a bit of a lemon 'thing'.  If you have seen our selection of lemon dishes here on our website or our Lemon Love Pinterest board with over 800 pins you may have had a clue.  So, when I tell you that my 2 favorite cocktails of all time are both custom creations by Chad and both are lemon cocktails. I am sure you are not surprised.


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. - See more at: http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2012/01/lucky-lemon-seven.html#sthash.M3jOa865.dpuf

The Puckered Jalapeno Frozen Margarita is my favorite cocktail of all time.  It is the perfect cocktail. Spicy Jalapeno flavor in a cooling frozen cocktail, lemony sweet with a salted rim, served with a jalapeno. FIESTA!!!

The fabulous Lemon Drop Martini served at the Legends Ball by Oprah Winfrey, sweet and sour just like eating the candy.

This luscious Lemon Cream Pie Martini is the perfect summer cocktail. Just like the dessert it is lip smacking good, tart, sweet & creamy!

  9. And if you are a pink lemonade fan, add some gin and have a good time also. Just a little southern hospitality I learned visiting my Aunt Norma Jean is Savannah when I was a young lady. No wonder she always said : " well ain't that just precious" lol!

  10. Mary Stevens -- Basically mash the lemon & vodka (or whatever ingredients need muddling) together so they break apart & the flavour comes out. They make proper muddling tools that look sort of like mini baseball bats, but you can use the end of a wooden spoon or similar. It is more vigorous than stirring, closer to a pound or a grind with the stick/spoon.

  12. I wonder if you could put the vodka and lemon mixture in a blender instead of muddling the lemons
