The lazy days of summer call for a refreshing glass of ice-cold lemonade. If you want to give your favorite warm weather beverage a grown-up twist, stir up one of these easy breezy late summer spiked lemonades with spirits from your home bar cabinet.
Fireball Pink Lemonade
Delish calls this Fireball Pink Lemonade, “the best of summer in a glass.” And we agree. In fact, it may soon become your favorite late summer cocktail. The spicy flavor of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey is a nice compliment to tart lemonade, while DIY grenadine syrup adds an extra touch of pink sweetness. If this unexpected cocktail combo sounds simply delightful, click here to learn how to make it. Serve your Fireball Pink Lemonade in a pint sized glass jar over ice with a straw, a few maraschino cherries, and a lemon wedge garnish.
Lemon Summer Shandy
Oh a sweltering, late summer day, who doesn’t love an ice cold beer? Like a tall glass of lemonade, it’s as refreshing as can be. Better yet, a Shandy is the ultimate combo of both beer and lemonade. Best of all, it’s super easy to make — you simply mix equal parts of each. The beer you choose is a matter of personal taste, of course. However, The Spruce Eats recommends using a little less lemonade with a wheat beer, which is the typical choice for a Summer Shandy, or a little more with a lager.
If your idea of paradise means basking in the AC and pulling up a stool at the kitchen island, this Sangria Lemonade from Yummly will hit the spot. To make a pitcher, you’ll need lemonade, rum from your bar cabinet, Sauvignon Blanc from your kitchen wine storage cabinet, and a pinch or two of sugar. A refreshing Sangria always calls for fresh fruit, so you’ll also want to slice and add some oranges and granny smith apples. For complete directions, click here.
Mimosas are naturally another easy way to spike lemonade. In this case, swap out orange juice for freshly squeezed lemonade. Fill a champagne flute halfway with lemonade, and top it with a favorite Champagne or sparkling Prosecco from your wine storage cabinet. Garnish with a lemon wedge, and then pull up a bar stool or catch some rays and breakfast outside. It’s like a vacation on the back patio or at your very own kitchen island. Cheers to lazy late summer days!
