here’s a sunny little cocktail to kick off the first official weekend of summer! this frozen lemonade is so light and refreshing (and it keeps nicely in the freezer) perfect for impromptu guests and all those lazy, hazy, crazy days ahead. we’ll be sipping on these poolside with a few L.A. friends this weekend. cheers!


12 oz frozen lemonade
12 oz vodka
24 oz cold water
zest from 1 lemon
lemon slices to garnish, if desired

combine lemonade concentrate, vodka, water and lemon zest. pour into a shallow, freezer safe pan and freeze mixture for at least 8 hours or overnight, stirring once halfway through freezing.

fluff ice crystals with a fork and spoon into glasses for serving. top with lemon slices.

happy summer sipping!
