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...
• 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.
