SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

It’s lemonade-stand season again and for adults, that means an ice-cold cocktail on the porch. Put a bit of a twist on the vodka lemonade by using UV Blue next time you mix this simple drink.

EXPERIENCE: Pour an ounce of blue raspberry vodka — UV brand is a classic — into a pint glass over ice, then fill it the rest of the way with Twisted Lemonade, Mike’s Hard, or another brand of hard lemonade. Add water or club soda to lighten the sweetness, or pump it up with some lemon slices. The result is a beverage that tastes just like the blue section of a Bomb Pop. 

ADVICE: Blend your Blue Vodka Lemonade for a classic slush (don’t forget the straw and cocktail umbrella). You can also transform the drink into a shot by mixing UV Blue, lemon juice, and a dash of sugar in a shaker with ice cubes. Let's call it a Blue Lemon Drop.
