Last weekend, the plan was sipping Vodka-Lemonade on the deck. Except when I opened the cabinet, I found an amazing lack of Vodka. (what is up with that?!) But mistakes happen and, often, lead to incredible inventions. Luckily, I did have Malibu Rum! Introducing… Rum Lemonade (which might be even better than the Vodka version.)

My new sip of choice for this summer: Simply lemonade with raspberry with a splash of coconut rum.

Lemon Raspberry Swirl Recipe (or lack thereof)

(Added 5/2013) This post is always super popular each spring, as warm weather patio parties approach. This year, in particular, I’m getting a lot of questions for the recipe/parts necessary for this drink. This isn’t so much a recipe as an idea. I’ve never measured, just mixed Raspberry Simply Lemonade with Coconut Rum and sipped until I had it “right.”

    That looks delicious! I’ll have to buy some of the Simply Lemonade with Raspberry, because of course I already have the Malibu Rum on hand :)

    Isn’t Simply Lemonade enough to make you want to sing out loud? I drank it when I was pregnant, and although it gave me heartburn something wicked, it was just so tasty! I think this summer I’ll invest in a companion bottle of Mali – thanks for the idea!

    Love this, want to share it…but it won’t be pinned! Oh well. Guess I’ll have to share it the old fashioned way–in person! LOL
