Boozy Berry Lemonade

Last weekend, I was up in Cape Cod for my sister-in-law's bachelorette party.  She and 10 of our friends and family spent a relaxing weekend at the most beautiful house in Pocasset!
I will be posting more about the bachelorette party next Wednesday when I link up for Wedding Wednesday, but as we start thinking about this upcoming weekend, I thought it'd be fun to share a delicious punch that one of the maids of honor made and was a HUGE hit with the guests!  Whether you're planning a weekend by the pool or at the beach, this is the perfect refreshing summer cocktail.
Ingredients:
8 cups of pre-made lemonade
1 and a half cups of fresh strawberries (sliced)
1 cup vodka
2 lemons (sliced)
1/4 cup chopped mint leaves
Directions:
1. Pour your lemonade into a large drink dispenser.  We used Country Time lemonade mix and made it according to the directions on the package.
2. In a blender, combine 1 cup of strawberries and 1 cup of vodka.  Blend until smooth.
3. Pour the boozy berry mixture into the lemonade and stir well.
4. Finish by topping the drink with the rest of the sliced strawberries, sliced lemons, and chopped mint.
5. Refrigerate until it's time to serve!
The bachelorette was a nautical theme: "last sail before the veil," and it was perfect for a girls' weekend on the Cape, only a 10 minute walk from the beach!  How cute were these "boat-inspired party cups" that the other maid of honor found on Pinterest?

  • What's your favorite summer cocktail?
