The Best Lemon Cocktail Recipes

2 high ball glasses and a glass pitcher all filled with ice, vodka, lemonade, and garnished with lemon wedges and mint leaves. Everyone knows that a good party starts with tasty cocktails. Splurge on some fresh squeezed lemonade for this Elderflower Vodka Lemonade. When you only have four ingredients in a drink, only use the best as it definitely makes a difference We added a shot of our favorite elderflower liqueur to make an ordinary drink fancy enough for guests.

Batch cocktails don’t get much easier than Sangria Lemonade. Just pour, stir and refrigerate for an hour to let the flavors develop and your cocktails are set. That’s my kind of entertaining. Tasty, easy and no fuss.
