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.)
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 about 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.”
