Lemonberry Cooler

It's hot out there right now. And what goes better with hot weather? Yep. A nice, refreshing drink. And if that drink has a little alcohol in it, then so be it.

I first made this on Memorial Day at a little cookout at my parents' house. It was one of those spur-of-the-moment type of concoctions that ended up being the new go-to. I've since made it for our Father's Day get together and the big July 4th bash. I think it's safe to say that it's my signature drink.

It's dangerously good. So good in fact that if you're like my mom, you end up drinking almost half the pitcher by yourself. (sorry, mom) I really can't blame her though...

Lemonberry Cooler


1/2 c sugar
1/2 c plain water
1/2 c fresh lemon juice
1/2 bottle Svedka Strawberry Lemonade Vodka
16 oz Seltzer water


Combine sugar and plain water together. Heat either in saucepan (or microwave for about 30 - 45 seconds) just until sugar is dissolved. Combine with remaining ingredients in pitcher. Serve over ice. Garnish with a strawberry, lemon slice, and fresh mint, if desired.
