It's hot. Crazy hot. Like we're sitting on the sun...so let's cool off with a nice frosty beverage that's not too filling and not too sweet, but will have you forgetting that your face is melting off.

I know that 'I don't want to do anythingggg' feeling that this weather brings, but I promise this one is pretty easy. Treat yourself to a Peachy Lemonade Kicker!

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 oz. vodka
  • 4 oz. lemonade
  • 1-2 peaches, cut in half, pit removed, peeled if you're ambitious

So for the best tasting drink, I'd recommend putting the peaches in a blender to puree them, but if you're super lazy, I suppose canned peach nectar would do. You want about 2-3 oz. of juice.

Add all the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice, pour into a tall glass, and enjoy.

Ways to change it up:

Use a flavored vodka, like sweet tea or lemon.
Use rum instead of vodka.
Use a different fruit (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries would all be great!)
Put all the ingredients in the blender (use frozen peaches) for a frosty treat!
