Spiked lemonade is the best sweet tart summer drink! Beat the heat with this fresh and boozy homemade lemonade. 


  • 4 ounces (1/2 cup) homemade lemonade
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) vodka*
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) limoncello (or omit and use 2 ounces vodka)
  • Ice, for serving
  • Fresh mint, for garnish


  1. Make the fresh lemonade. (Refrigerate the pitcher for later use, or make the “By the glass” variation.)
  2. In a glass, pour in the lemonade and bourbon. Add ice and garnish with fresh mint and a cocktail cherry. (If you like bubbly drinks, you can always top off with soda water or ginger ale.)


*You can also make vodka lemonade by mixing 8 ounces lemonade (1 cup) with 2 ounces vodka (1/4 cup).
