I know I’ve probably made one too many Beyonce analogies on here, but let’s be real, boozy lemonade is to Labor Day as fancy leotards are to Beyonce. The two practically thrive off of one another. You guys know I love my Simply Lemonade as a mixer, but sometimes it’s nice to get a little creative with your drink options. Thankfully, Snow Leopard Vodka has got you covered. Just in time for the Labor Day weekend, they’ve crafted two boozy lemonade options that are sure to be a welcome treat for this weekend’s festivities.

1.5 oz Snow Leopard
1.5 oz Lavender Lemonade
Build in a collins glass, add crushed ice, swizzle and a lemon twist.
Before I go on a mass texting spree in the hopes of figuring out what “the move” is this Fourth of July weekend, I figured it seemed only right to share a handful of Independence Day inspired cocktails with you guys. Below, you’ll find my personal Fourth of July picks from brands including from Belvedere Vodka, Basil Hayden’s, Courvoisier, and more.
Cheers! And be sure to keep safe this weekend. (Remember to keep a bucket of water on hand if you plan on celebrating with your own fireworks. I heard that on the news yesterday and for some odd reason felt compelled to share.)
Oh! One last thing. I plan (emphasis on “plan”) to take part in my first Periscope (live-streaming app) on July 4th (7 to 10 P.M.) at the Georgia Aquarium’s Red, White & Brew event. So, be sure to follow me! Username is @Lushworthy.
