Vodka Limeade is a refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for summer. Start with limeade concentrate, a splash of OJ, vodka & mint. It’s like summer in a glass!
With the warm weather upon us and school almost out we will begin to see little entrepreneurs with their lemonade stands in abundance. Of course you won’t find this particular punch for sale there but it is one that will certainly appeal to you and all your adult friends. Not only is this Vodka Limeade Cocktail easy to make but it tastes like pure summer in a glass.
It’s a very adaptable recipe too. You can make it either on the rocks, frozen or by the pitcher for a refreshing cooler for summer gatherings. It’s a little bit tart and a little bit sweet and perfectly cool and light for the hot evenings ahead.
You start with a can of frozen limeade concentrate which is always handy to keep in your freezer. Of course, if you have it there you might wind up making our Icebox Key Lime Bites, cool chocolate covered bites that taste like Key Lime Pie, or you could just buy 2 cans and make both! 🙂 Next add some orange juice for that tropical touch that takes away some of the tartness of the limeade, then a few ounces of vodka and you’ve got yourself one yummy cocktail!
Just keepin’ it cool! Have a great summer!
