ginger lemonade {cocktail}

One of my favorite sunny day cocktails is the Lynchburg Lemonade.  A little Jack Daniels, a lot of lemonade and ice.   But too many and your sunny afternoon cocktail can lead to an afternoon nap.  So I’ve come up with a lighter alternative that is just as tasty.  This cocktail has a little vodka and one of my new crushes, St. Germain…an elderflower liqueur.  It is refreshing and simple. Perfect for a spring day.  

In a highball glass mix:
1 oz. vodka
1 oz. St. Germain
fresh lemonade

Serve over a couple of ice cubes and garnish with a sprig of lemon thyme.

If you are going the store-bought lemonade route, pick up a container of Newman’s Own from the fresh juice section.  It is less sweet than most others.  Also, if you want to zing, do one part club soda, 2 parts lemonade. Yum!
